Program schedules and types vary with the season and park region. We offer the widest variety and number of ranger-led programs from late June through August. When you arrive, check visitor centers and bulletin boards in each area for program details or schedule changes.

Programs are offered by both the National Park Service and the Sequoia Natural History Association.

Click on the "View Park Map" at the bottom of the main menu (inside the white box labeled "Park Tools") for specific locations. There is about a one-hour drive between each of the following areas: The Foothills, Giant Forest/Lodgepole, Grant Grove, and Cedar Grove. Mineral King is about a 1-1/2 hour drive from the turnoff at Hwy 198.
