As the gateway to Sequoia National Park and Kings Canyon, Squaw Valley is a place blessed with natural scenery, plenty of history and a myriad of things to do in and around the area.
Travelers who are looking to be immersed in nature should take a visit to Kings Canyon, where you may be surprised to learn that it's actually deeper than the Grand Canyon and is home to the third largest tree (by volume) in the USA -- the General Grant Tree. Equally, head on over to Sequoia National Park where you'll find the first and second largest trees -- the Giant Sequoia Redwoods.Both parks are a paradise of wildlife and hiking trails, a place to reconnect with the wonders of nature.
Elsewhere, Boyden Cave and Crystal Cave are two incredible caverns. A visit here is the perfect spot for some photography, as the wonderful marble interiors are truly a special sight.
Outdoor activities in the area include rafting on Kings River, swimming at Hume Lake and hiking up to Buck Rock Lookout. There's even the opportunity to go hang gliding and paragliding -- just look up to the sky and see!
Visit in springtime for wonderful weather and blooming flowers in the parks.
