When we visited Sequoia National Park, we expected to see plenty of tall trees-after all, that’s what the park is most known for. But when we headed out to hike the Tokopah Falls Trail, we had no idea that we were going to find an amazing waterfall amidst steep cliffs and a rushing river. While it takes a bit of work to get to Tokopah Falls, it is definitely worth the effort and time.
While you may come to Sequoia National Park to have a jaw-dropping experience looking at the tallest trees in the world, we highly recommend you take the time to head out on this great hike!
Moro Rock may not immediately come to mind when you think of visiting Sequoia National Park. There is no doubt that the most common reason for visiting this park is because of the trees, and they are impressive. But these trees only grow at an elevation between 5,000 and 7,000 feet, providing the opportunity for amazing views when you are able to get out of the tree cover.
Moro Rock in Sequoia National Park is one such place. It has amazing views, and provided you can navigate through the crowds it only takes a few minutes to get to from where you park your vehicle. Though it requires a bit stair climbing, you are sure to find this part of the park amazing and well worth your time.
If you have the ability to climb a few stairs in the high elevation, Moro Rock is a highly recommended stop in Sequoia National Park!
Located near the end of the Kings Canyon Scenic Byway and Cedar Grove Village Road in the Cedar Grove area of Kings Canyon National Park is the Zumwalt Meadow Trail. This peaceful oasis in an otherwise rugged canyon is a must-do hike in the park.
Suitable for families with young children, this hike is a quick 2.4-mile jaunt. It has enough to keep everyone interested, including a stroll along the Kings River, a suspension bridge crossing, a walk through a boulder field and finally a view of Zumwalt Meadow that seems to come out of nowhere.
