Sequoia National Forest Guide

This national forest is best known for the giant sequoia, the largest tree in the world. While these towering mammoths are spectacular, the park has much more to offer the outdoor enthusiast in the way of towering cliffs, rushing rivers, and placid lakes. You can hike or travel via ATV, mountain bike, or horseback through the 1,500 miles of maintained roads, 1000 miles of abandoned roads, and 850 miles of trails. You can enjoy boating, fishing, water-skiing, swimming, whitewater rafting, and kayaking in the warmer months. In winter, you can go downhill skiing and snowboarding, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling. In addition to black bears, animals that roam the forest include coyotes, badgers, sheep, deer, opossums, wolverines, beavers, muskrats, mountain lions, foxes, and an almost endless list of birds.

Many choose Sequoia National Forest as a quieter alternative to Yosemite and other busy attractions. The highlight is the giant trees, but you'll find much more to explore. There's plenty of room to spread out on backcountry trails as well as short hikes just off the road. Every season has unique offerings ranging from lake beaches to wildflower romps and cross-country skiing treks. With over 1.1 million acres, Sequoia National Forest is a perfect place to explore in an RV.
