Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks lie adjacent to one another on the western slopes of the southern Sierra Nevada Mountains of California. Sequoia National Park is home to the largest of the Giant Sequoia Trees, which can be easily visited by short dayhikes on wide, well-maintained trails over level terrain. In terms of volume, the Giant Sequoia Trees are the largest tree in the world, making them an awe-inspiring sight to see. Although not the longest living trees in the world, their life span is also quite incredible. The oldest Giant Sequoia is known to have lived for 3,500 years. This page has photos of the Gian Sequoia Trees and some of the scenery around Sequoia National Park.

Sequoia National Park is remote enough and wild enough that a lot of wildlife can be seen. Some caution is necessary.
