Sequoia National Park (California, USA) – exact location, interesting places, inhabitants, routes.
- National Park “Sequoia”
Sequoia National Park is located in California, in the south of the Sierra Nevada. In fact, together with the Kings Canyon National Park, they form a huge nature reserve. Giant trees grow here, including the legendary Sherman sequoia. And around there are picturesque mountains, deep lakes, fast-flowing rivers, hiking trails, rich fauna and much more.
The park is divided into several zones, connected by roads 198 and 180. The most popular attractions are located either directly along the tracks, or at a short distance. The rest of the “Sequoia” can only be explored on foot, since the whole territory is riddled with many kilometers of trails.
Moving around “Sequoia” by car, you need to be very careful. The forests are inhabited by a variety of animals, and animals, including bears, jump out onto the roadway.
What to watch
Among the most interesting areas of the park are Foothills (foothills) with lowlands, streams and the richest flora. But the main goal of the “Sequoia” visitors is the Giant Forest, where those famous trees, striking in their size, grow. The Mineral King area is a valley covered with pine and spruce forests, with an abundance of picturesque granite and shale landscapes. You can visit it only in summer.
Each area has visitor centers where you can get an off-campus permit, call, buy souvenirs, maps and get first aid. Free Sequoia Shuttles run through the park during the summer, stopping close to these spots.
