Are you traveling with your furry friend? Dogs are welcome to join you on your stay at Sequoia Resort (with just a few house rules - see below). We love our dogs and know that they make great road trip and adventure companions.
Unfortunately, dogs are not allowed on any of the trails within Sequoia National Park or Kings Canyon National Park. However, fear not, there are still great trails within the national forest surrounding both national parks that welcome your four-legged friends.
5 TOP DAY HIKES Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks
Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks truly have a day hike for everyone, even if you aren't visiting for a long time. Not only are they home to the world's largest tree but also stunning mountains, caverns, canyons, and waterfalls.
Not included in the list because it's the most famous spot in the parks, but the General Sherman Tree Trail is the #1 must do "hike" in Sequoia. The easy out-and-back 0.7 mile trail to this incredible spectacle is paved and accessible year-round. Fun fact: General Sherman is already the world's biggest tree and continues to grow at a rate of about 0.4 inches in diameter per year.
Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks are a huge draw for crowds in the summer, but did you realize that they are open year round? Fall and winter visits not only give you a chance to see the majesty of the parks with fewer crowds but also open them up for all new adventures.
