Outings & Events

Saturday, October 25 - Redwood Canyon, Kings Canyon National Park - This is a moderate, 10-mile hike with just over 2,000 feet of elevation change and a peak elevation of just under 7,000 feet. Even though the trail passes through the Redwood Mountain Grove, the world's largest Sequoia grove, it is very lightly traveled. For more information please contact Dave Keller at 559-688-4813 or We now have a Sierra Club Meet-up Hiking group which can be accessed on the internet. This means our hikes are now filling up, and if you wait until a couple of days before the hike to contact me, there is likely to be no space.

See Sierra Club Kern-Kaweah Chapter Outings on!



Future ExComs: 3rd Wednesdays at Colima’s at 6 p.m.
