The Sequoia National Forest, located at the southern end of the Sierra Nevada in central California, takes its name from the giant sequoia, the world's largest tree, which grows in more than 30 groves on the Forest's lower slopes.
The Forest comprises about 1.1 million acres, and elevations range from about 1,000 to 12,000 feet, creating precipitous canyons and mountain streams with spectacular waterfalls such as Salmon Creek Falls and Grizzly Falls.
There is a convenience store a mile away in the small community of Camp Nelson. Pierpoint Springs Resort is located just 2 miles away.
In addition to hiking the Monument's giant sequoia groves, visitors can explore the nearby Bear Creek Trail, which ascends to 9,000 feet through a diverse terrain. There is also excellent trout fishing available in several creeks dotted throughout the area.
