Whether you choose a short, paved trail or an all-day hike, exploring by foot is a great way to experience these parks!

Before you hit the trail, know some facts before you go:

Trail Maps

We recommend taking a map, especially for longer or unpaved trails. Even short trails can lead to unmarked intersections or unexpected detours, and it is your responsibility to be prepared. With hundreds of miles of trails in these parks, it's difficult to provide detailed trail maps online. Buy trail maps at each park visitor center or through the Sequoia Parks Conservancy's online store. You can also visit our digital map, the Sequoia & Kings Canyon Park Atlas, to create and print custom maps.
