Hi, 
Thank you for your question!
Sequoia National Park has many must sees, but the essential sight would be the Giant Forest north of the Ash Mountain Sequoia entrance. This forest is filled with over 8,000 gigantic redwoods, including General Sherman, the largest living tree in the world. Second to the redwoods, would be the Tokopah Waterfall that cascades for nearly 1,200 feet. Thirdly, would be Moro Rock, the gigantic granite dome that provides fantastic views of the park.
 
Hope you have a wonderful visit,
Sarah
