Sequoia National Park is a national park in the southern Sierra Nevada, east of Visalia, California. It was established in 1890 as the second U.S. national park, after Yellowstone National Park. The park spans over 404,000 acres and contains among its natural resources the highest point in the contiguous 48 United States, Mount Whitney, at 14,505 feet above sea level. The park is south of and contiguous with Kings Canyon National Park; the two are administered by the National Park Service as one unit, called Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks.
