Driving to Sequoia National Park from the south on California Highway 198, you traverse the flat, fertile San Joaquin Valley, often called the 'food basket of the world.' You begin your mountain ascent on The Generals Highway over continuous hairpin curves to a hiking and camping paradise almost 7,000 feet above sea level. Word to the wise: Don’t trust your GPS. You’ll still have 23 winding miles left to go from the park entrance to Wuksachi Lodge, the only lodging in the park--a beautiful mountain lodge with guest rooms located in groves of trees blending into the forest. With every modern convenience and mouth-watering high-country cuisine, you will be encountering the splendor of Mother Nature in pristine and peaceful perfection.
