This is a beautiful place you should not miss if you’re in the area. Make sure you wear good shoes and warm clothes if visiting during the winter months. Our family enjoyed the beautiful scenery and huge trees!

Such a short drive up to the Sequoias and it's so beautiful. Clean, clear air, nice and cool with some snow now. The Sequoia trees are huge!
