hen planning your stay at Wicky-Up Ranch, be sure to leave time in your itinerary to spend a day at both the evergreen Giant Forest at Sequoia National Park, CA and the spectacular rocky-cliffed Kings Canyon National Park, which features the Kings River and several splendid waterfalls. It takes a full day to see each park.

Both parks afford many hiking trails for amateur and professional hikers alike and Ranger-guided snowshoe walks.  The rangers at the visitor centers will have many suggestions for hiking, but Wicky-Up Ranch offers a personalized tour map for you as a part of your stay with us.

While in Sequoia National Park you will see the largest living tree in the world – - the General Sherman, standing 275 feet high and measuring 103 feet in circumference. There are taller trees, older trees and trees with larger bases, but there are none with more overall volume of wood than this giant sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum).

While in Sequoia, you may also wish to take the 20-minute walk to the top of Moro Rock (which you will see all along the way as you wend your way up the mountain towards Sequoia National Park. The view eastward towards the Great Western Divide is one you will most likely never forget.

At Grant Grove, at the top of Kings Canyon National Park, you will find the second largest living tree in the world, the General Grant, know as the Nation’s Christmas Tree. The two parks are connected by a beautiful highway known as the Generals’ Highway.

Giant Sequoias are located on the western slope of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. There are groves as far north as the Tahoe National Forest and south to the Sequoia National Forest. They are also located in between on public lands in Sequoia, Kings Canyon and Yosemite National Parks and Calaveras Big Trees State Park.

Be sure to stop at the new museum in Giant Forest to speak to a park ranger and learn more about these magnificent trees.


Park information and planning your trip.

The parks are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, weather permitting. Our highest visitation is in July and August. Campsites may be difficult to obtain on summer weekends and holidays, as well as off-season holidays.

Because of the extreme elevation range in the parks, weather conditions vary greatly from area to area and day to day. Please see the links below for more information on the season that corresponds to the time when you will visit the parks.
