Yosemite and Big Sur Road Trip

The Yosemite and Big Sur Road Trip includes parks: Yosemite National Park, Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks, Point Reyes National Seashore, Pheiffer Big Sur State Park and more!

Yosemite National Park is our first park destination on this road trip. It adorns the Sierra's with some of the most beautiful views you can imagine. From Half Dome and El Capitan to Tuolumne Meadows and the High Country, Yosemite will offer anyone something special to remember.

Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks are home to giant redwoods and sequoias, immense mountains and deep canyons. Thanks to their huge elevational range, 1,500' to 14,491', these parks protect very diverse habitats. The Generals Highway climbs over 5,000 ft. from oak studded foothills to chaparral to the beautiful sequoia groves.

Point Lobos derived its name from the offshore rocks at Punta de los Lobos Marinos, meaning Point of the Sea Wolves. The reserve has often been called "the crown jewel of the State Park System." Point Lobos State Reserve has outstanding passive recreation opportunities, such as sightseeing, photography, painting, nature study, picnicking and scuba diving.

These parks and more can be seen along the Yosemite and Big Sur Road Trip. This self-guided route can be used to help you plan your trip around California. Add or subtract to accommodate your available time.
