Entering Sequoia National Park from the East

Entering Sequoia National Park from the East

You can enter Sequoia National Park the easy way via SR-180 from the north or SR-198 from the south out of California’s Central Valleyor – you could take the more adventurous path and enter via the Mt Whitney Trail on the eastern side of the Sierras.

No matter how you get there, Sequoia National Park is an inspiring place to wander.
