The city of Visalia is located in the fields of the San Joaquin Valley just below the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The access to various National Parks, National Forests & Wilderness areas makes this a great stop-over spot for those who plan to visit the Sierras.

The Sequoia Park Bus Route departs Visalia, travels along Highway 198, picks up guests in Three Rivers, stops at the Ash Mountain Visitor Center, then continues up to Sequoia National Park. Once at the Giant Forest Museum, visitors are able to connect to the Sequoia Shuttle's two in-Park routes. The shuttle departs Visalia five times daily! see more info
