Sequoia National Park
Located at the end of South Fork Drive is another entrance, more humbly observed, to Sequoia National Park. This view from the end of Ladybug trail shows low elevation forest and water falls that are the back drop to the swarming activity shown in the pictures above. This trail is a moderate trek and the shortest in distance (3 mile round trip), but there are other trails to choose from that can take the seasoned traveler deep into the Park where the Giant Redwood Sequoias grow and the wild life is abundant.
The path more traveled is Highway 198 which takes you on a journey to many treasures, trails, and tributaries that make up the park in all its glory.
Below is the General Sherman Tree : approximately 45 minutes by car from the DaVidgil House. There are numerous trails, caves, meadows and lakes to visit while in the park, but there is nothing like the awe that comes from viewing these 3,000 year old giants!
