    Administered by the U.S.D.A. Forest Service, the Sequoia National Forest is one of 155 national forests nationwide and one of nineteen National Forest in California.

    It takes its name from the giant sequoia, the world's largest tree, which grows in more than 30 groves in the forest's lower elevation slopes.

    The Sequoia's landscape is as spectacular as its trees. Soaring granite monoliths, glacier-carved canyons, roaring whitewater, and more await your discovery at the Sierra Nevada's southern end.

    Elevations range from 1,000 feet in the foothill region to peaks over 12,000 feet in the rugged high country, providing visitors with some of the most spectacular views of mountainous landscape in the entire west.

    Whether your interests are outdoor recreational activities, such as hiking or camping, the fields, forests and streams or learning about the unique natural and cultural heritage of Southern California, the Sequoia National Forest welcomes you.
