Northern California Snowshoeing
Have you ever snowshoed before? For a lot of people the answer is no, but it's an amazing and fun way to explore the winter Sequoia landscape. Snowshoes and other winter equipment are available for rent at Wuksachi Lodge.
With easy access to pristine winter terrain and well-marked snowshoe trails, Wuksachi Lodge® is a great place to step out and give snowshoeing a go. It’s really pretty easy (if you can walk, you can snowshoe) and the new, high-tech gear is very cool. For kids who’d like to try the sport, Monster Dino™ snowshoes make their time on the trail even more fun!
Walking among giant sequoias, red-orange trunks staked into a base of pure white snow, is an unforgettable visual and some say even a spiritual experience.
Ranger-guided Sequoia snowshoeing walks are usually offered in Giant Forest and Grant Grove on weekends when conditions permit. The park provides snowshoes free for the two-hour, one-mile guided walks in Giant Forest and Grant Grove.
Group size is limited, so plan your Northern California snowshoeing adventure early. To reserve your place for the Giant Forest walk, just go to any visitor center or call (559) 565-4480. You can also reserve your spot for the Grant Grove walk by calling (559) 565-4307. Advance reservations for both walks are strongly recommended.
