Sequoia National Park and Kings Canyon National Park are a large part of the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range. Among the spectacles are the giant sequoia trees, an array of canyons, about 200 marble caves, and one of the tallest mountains in the U.S., Mt. Whitney. The giant sequoia trees are the largest in the world. They tower at an average height of 164–279 ft., with trunk diameters ranging from 20–26 ft. Record-breaking trees have been measured to be 311 ft. tall.
