General Sherman Tree

The picture explains it all for you. It's giant. 2700 years old. 275 feet tall. 36 feet diameter at the base. World's largest living thing.

High Peaks, Great Trees

Though Sequoia National Park isn't my favorite, I like it very much. The scenery here is very diverse, from dry foothills to deep canyons, high peaks, giant trees, and lakes. It's also a good place to hike: trails lead to meadows, waterfalls, and views. The best hiking in the park (in my opinion) is at Little Baldy, near Dorst Creek, and Mineral King Valley, in the southern part of the park.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Beautiful scenery, giant sequoias, sparse crowds
  • Cons:ugly development at Wuksachi Lodge
