Three Rivers Things to Do: 6 reviews and 6 photos

  Sierra Foothills
by chewy3326

Do the foothills look bleak and unattractive? Think again... although they are not as sublime as the high peaks of the Sierra, they have their own beauty, ranging from canyons and waterfalls to Native American artifacts. The foothills are often hot and dry in summer, but temperatures are usually more moderate in spring and autumn. The main visitor center for Sequoia National Park is the Ash Mountain/Foothills Visitor Center just 5 miles from Three Rivers. Also in the foothills are the Kaweah River, Hospital Rock, and the Sequoia National Park entrance sign. So while many other visitors would just pass by this area, the foothills of the Sierra still merit a stop.

Directions: Just northeast of Three Rivers via Generals Highway
