Last Known StatusOpen

This part of the Sequoia National Forest has about 25 miles of motorized trails that wind through some of the tallest trees around. The trails offer a nice mix of terrain that ranges from fast and smooth hardpack to rugged and rocky with a few creek crossings.

The trail system has several trailheads and campgrounds to choose from - those looking for mostly easy to moderate trails with basic campground amenities should set up camp at Millwood Staging Area. For access to the more difficult trails stage at Cherry Gap or Abbott Creek Campground. Parking is limited at all of the trailheads and large trailers are not recommended.

Other area highlights include the Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park, home to the world's tallest trees.
