Overview

Wonderful day hikes and sightseeing in an area just south of Yosemite which is less visited, but equally spectacular. It is famous for giant sequoias (the world's largest trees), soaring mountains, deep canyons, roaring rivers and awesome waterfalls. Fly to and from Fresno, CA. Drive to the Parks to stay for six nights, including four at Wuksachi Lodge, Sequoia's signature hotel, a striking stone-and-cedar mountain lodge situated in the heart of the park and surrounded by a mighty sequoia forest and soaring Sierra peaks. The Wuksachi Lodge was built in 1999 in a spectacular alpine setting at an elevation of 7,200 feet. We will enjoy hikes to Little Baldy, Tokopah Falls, Heather Lake and the Watchtower, Mist Falls, Buena Vista Peak and Cedar Grove Outlook. Our premier hike will be to 11,204 Alta Peak which features commanding views of the Great Western Divide and a 6,000 foot drop to the Kaweah River Canyon. We will also walk amongst the world's highest trees, visit the Giant Forest Museum and climb Moro Rock.
