Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks

Superintendent Name: 
Craig Axtell
Located in eastern California, about 5 hours drive from both Los Angeles and San Francisco, Sequoia National Park brings out the best in all those who seek both adventure and tranquility. Though full of mountains of all geological make-ups to climb and scamper in, the park's true greatness is in the forest. Home to some of the largest trees in the world, the Sequoia, this park you have to see to believe. "If trees could be kings," say many, "their royal realm would be in Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks."
