Established in 1890, Sequoia National Park is California's first national park and America's second oldest. With more than 1 million annual visitors, Sequoia National Park is a popular destination for guests from around the world. Filled with pristine wilderness, giant trees, and terrain that invite engagement and adventure, it's a place where friends and family can enjoy the great outdoors together. Sequoia Sightseeing Tours introduce visitors to this awe-inspiring park with expert local guides who know it well. There are more than 800 miles of Sequoia hiking trails for people of every ability and inclination, from gentle ambles among giant sequoias to moderate day hikes and full-throttle ascents. Fly fishing, stargazing, and spelunking are on the itinerary. And when winter makes it's magical arrival at the park's higher elevation, Sequoia recreation expands to include showshoeing, cross-country skiing, and sledding. Take a leisurely drive after breakfast and climb the 300 foot stair to the summit of Moro Rock where you will enjoy sweeping views of the western half of the Sequoia National Park. Or, visit Crystal Cave, a treasure-cavern of ornate marble polished by subterranean streams and decorates with curtains of icicle-like stalactites and mounds of stalagmites.
