Directions to Sequoia Highlands in Sequoia National Park

Sequoia Highlands is about a 90 minute drive from Fresno along Hwy 180 which also goes up into the National Parks.  It is a beautiful drive, especially in the springtime when the wildflowers are in bloom.

The last three miles to Sequoia Highlands is on a well-maintained gravel road, shown in the photo on the right. Check the driving instructions below for exact directions.

Driving Directions from Fresno:

Sequoia Sight Seeing MapIf you use directions from Mapquest please realize that our street address (45002 E. Kings Canyon Road - Hwy 180, Dunlap CA 93621) is the address of the mailbox on Hwy 180. After that point you should use the directions on here. Also - buy gas and groceries on the way up - last chance is Clingan's Junction. Also buy groceries in Fresno before you come - there are no grocery stores up here, only small convenience stores in Clingan's Junction and Grant's Grove Visitor Center.

If you are coming from the Fresno area one simple way to come is to take Clovis Avenue east off of Hwy 99.  Then turn right on Kinga Canyon Road.

Take Kings Canyon Road through Centerville and the tiny town of Mettler.  About 1 mile after Mettler turn left at the Hwy 180 sign towards the National Parks. (This left turn is about 15 miles from the intersection of Clovis Avenue and Kings Canyon Road).

Drive through Clingon's Junction (last chance for gas on the left, Hummingbirds Restaurant on the right).  You will eventually pass "Snowline Lodge" on your left, which is about where our small map starts.

About a mile after that you will turn left on Millwood Road (the blue arrow on the map). (There will be a sign pointing the way to Sequoia Highlands.) Sequoia Highlands is 4.2 miles from Hwy 180.

Stay on this road about 3 more miles to Sequoia Highlands (bear left where there is a fork in the road). Follow the signs to Delilah Fire Lookout and for Seqouia Highlands (Delilah is on the same road beyond the camp).

The map on the right is the National Park Service map of Sequoia/Kings Canyon Parks, overlaid with information about interesting sights that can be seen from the north entrance to the Parks. Sequoia Highlands is about 12 miles from this north entrance.

The map to the immediate right shows more of the surrounding area, including the entrance to the National Parks off of Hwy 180.
