The best time to visit the Sequoia National Park is summer, from June to September, since it is the mildest and driest of the year at high altitudes, where the redwoods are found. You will need to dress in layers, and to be equipped for the sun during the day (with hat and sunglasses), but also for the cool evening (and the cold night).
However, it should be remembered that the summer is scorching at low altitudes.
During the rest of the year, and especially from December to March, snow could block the roads, especially those at higher altitudes such as Highway 198. When it does not block them, you can admire the snow-covered sequoias, however, it is mandatory to have chains on board.
The park was established in 1890.
