Be prepared to be overwhelmed with the choices you have when it comes to hiking in the Sequoia National Forest! But don't be alarmed, you can plan your perfect trip using the information here on this website, or by calling one of our offices for further information. Hiking in the Sequoia NF is what you want to make of it. We encourage all hikers to evaluate their skill level, choose a trail and conditions that are appropriate, plan what you take with you carefully, and let people know where you are going and when you'll be back.
There are an incredible amount of day-hikes available that all offer different views, from forests, to deserts, to granite peaks. Hiking is the way to explore the forest, and is allowed anywhere within the forest.
Advanced hikers and backpackers can find the challenges they seek as well. The Pacific Crest Trail runs through several sections of the Sequoia NF. The six designated Wilderness areas also give backpackers a chance to get away from it all and return to nature for a few days
