Sequoia National Park Guide

Sequoia National Park is home to the largest – and the largest number of – sequoia trees on earth. Due to their height, but especially their girth, sequoia trees are the biggest plants on the planet. Many of the largest trees have names and seeing them is a truly awe-inspiring experience.

There is no place like it, easily making Sequoia National Park (and the adjacent Kings Canyon National Park), one of the top national parks in the United States.
