Find the Biggest Trees Snow Shoe Walk

Feb 16, 2013
Have you started drinking hot cocoa yet?  Have you pulled out your scarf?  Here in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks we certainly have!  The mornings are frosty and there are crisp, clear skies over the peaks!  We have even had our very first dustings of snow.  Why not come play in the snow with us this winter?  Get ready for a naturally magical holiday season in the national parks.  We’ve picked the most picturesque seasonal trails for  memory-making experiences.   We’ll provide sturdy snow shoes and an expert guide for our fun EdVentures.  Please email us at for more details.  You can sign up for these trips at  We look forward to seeing you on the trail!

February 16, 2013  Find the Biggest Trees
The Giant Forest is home to the biggest of the big trees, but many of the largest named trees do not have signs. Join me as we wander the Giant Forest in search of these trees. The focus of this walk will be on off-trail travel and reading a topographic map within a safe and well used area of the park. This will be a moderately challenging walk as we leave the marked trails behind to cross hills and meadows on a treasure hunt like no other. We will begin near the General Sherman tree and head into the heart of the Giant Forest. Be prepared to spend most of the day walking in the snow covered forest. Because we will be navigating using maps and the topography of the area, this trip is dependent upon weather:  If we can’t see the meadow, we can’t cross it. Limit of 10 participants.  $55 SNHA members/$63 non-members.  Snow shoes, compasses, and maps included. Expert guiding and snow shoes included.  Rated:  Moderate

These and more trips will be available in 2013.  Watch for more information.  All proceeds from our trips support education and resource protection in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks.
