Guide to Giant Sequoia Groves of California

This list is intended to serve as a guide to where to find Giant Sequoias in California. Some groves are easily accessed via the Kern River Valley while most are accessed via the westside of the Sierra Nevada off of Highways 99 or 65. There are approximately 35,000-38,000 acres of giant sequoias in the Sierra Nevada; most of these are in Tulare County. Many groves are accessible via paved road, although most are subject to winter road closures. Contact the agency listed to learn of current conditions. Bold type means the grove is open year-round. Italicized type means groves are accessible via paved road.
