Sequoia and Kings Canyon, California
Gain a newfound respect for trees when you step—and sleep—inside this magical 400,000+ acre redwood forest, home to some of the largest trees in the world, including the General Sherman, which stands at nearly 300 feet tall. This eight-day trekking adventure with Intrepid Travel will take you from LA through the country’s second oldest national park, Sequoia, and the newer Kings Canyon (established in 1940 and another 400,000+ acres), and up to the Pacific Crest Trail—the same one Cheryl Strayed famously hiked in her book-turned-movie, Wild. From there, continue skyward, above the treeline, for the most stunning sunrise of your life on top of Mt. Whitney.
