Welcome to Sequoia National Forest and Giant Sequoia National Monument

The landscape is as spectacular as the trees!

Soaring granite monoliths, glacier-carved canyons, limestone caves, roaring world-class whitewater, and scenic lakes and reservoirs await your discovery at the Sierra Nevada's southern reach. Elevations range from 1,000 feet in the lower canyons to peaks over 12,000 feet on the crest of the Sierra, providing some of the best panoramic views in a dramatic range of settings in the entire west!
