When visiting Sequoia National Park consider parking the car and taking the free shuttle to see the sights.
The shuttles are clean and the drivers are courteous. One driver, in particular, was a real hoot and kept us well entertained as she drove us through the Giant Forest.
It was really great not having to search for a parking space or having to drive back to our camping spot after a long day.
My family took advantage of the morning shuttles. At this time the shuttles had just a couple of riders and the destinations had fewer crowds. Shuttles run every 15 minutes from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. during the summer. The shuttle service makes stops in several areas including:
Dorst Campground, Wuksachi Village, Lodgepole Campground, Lodgepole Visitors Center, the General Sherman Tree Main Trail, the Sherman Tree Wheelchair Accessible Trial, the Giant Forest Museum, Moro Rock and Crescent Meadow.
For complete dates of operation and any route, changes check the park’s newspaper. You are given a newspaper when you enter the park.
