"Gateway to Sequoia" Three Rivers by chewy3326

Three Rivers Travel Guide: 20 reviews and 36 photos

Three Rivers is a dry, tiny town at the gateway to Sequoia National Park, consisting mainly of a few motels, two restaurants, a general store, and a post office. The location of the town isn't exactly convenient, either, and it's still a full hour's drive to Giant Forest in Sequoia National Park. But if you must base yourself outside the park, Three Rivers is the best place to stay. I spent a night at Three Rivers while getting between Giant Forest and Mineral King. In some areas of the town (which is stretched out along Generals Highway for about five-six miles) you can see Alta Peak, while in other areas you can Lake Kaweah. Summer is always hot here (About 90 degrees in June).

    I sure can see why you love Mineral King Valley so much...it's breathtaking or is it your photography that's breathtaking? Crystal caves look grand also. Thanks for this scenic virtual tour.
