Sequoia National Park, Sequoia National Forest, and Giant Sequoia National Monument, are three publicly owned lands in the Sierra Nevadas with Giant Sequoia groves.
The Sequoia National Park is a national park in the southern Sierra Nevada, east of Visalia, California. The park is south of and contiguous with Kings Canyon National Park; the two are administered by the National Park Service as one unit, called Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks.
The park is most famous for its Giant Sequoia trees, including the General Sherman tree, the largest tree on Earth. The General Sherman tree grows in the Giant Forest, which contains five out of the ten largest trees in the world.. The Giant Forest is connected by the park’s Generals Highway to Kings Canyon National Park’s Grant Grove, home to the General Grant tree among other sequoias.
The Sequoia National Forest and Giant Sequoia National Monument are named for the giant sequoia, the world’s largest tree. The landscape is as spectacular as its 38 groves of giant sequoia. Majestic granite monoliths, glacier-torn canyons, roaring whitewater, and lush meadows await your discovery at the southern end of the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range.
