Several dozen groups of giant sequoia trees are found across the western slopes of the Sierra Nevada in central California, but the most largest and most well-known groves are found within Sequoia National Park, an extensive preserve also containing high elevation valleys, lakes and peaks, including 14,505 foot Mount Whitney. The center of visitor activities is Giant Forest, where a network of easy trails visits the densest sequoia. Despite heavy winter snowfall, the main road through the park (General's Highway) stays open all year.
