Vacation Attractions in Three Rivers, California
Three Rivers got its name from the city's location near the North, Middle and South forks of the Kaweah River. With a population of nearly 3,000 in Tulare County, California, the town has many activities for the outdoor enthusiast. From waterfalls to hiking trails, this region is home to two national parks offering endless possibilities. When planning your trip to this majestic location, plan to visit some of these locations.

Sequoia National Park

This area consists of two parks side by side, the Sequoia National Park and Kings Canyon National Park. Covering the land are towering mountains, canyons and the world's largest trees. Summer offers the most activities and runs from June to September. Even if you only have a few hours, you can experience the beauty of this area with a hike to the General Sherman Tree, the largest, single-trunk living tree on earth. If you want to spend the day, you can experience the Crystal Cave Tour, a half-mile walk to the cave with stalactites and naturally polished marble.

Kaweah Whitewater Adventures

Kaweah Whitewater Adventures offers tours every year from April through June in three varying difficulties. Trips leave in the morning, afternoon, or for a full day on the Kaweah River. The company and guides are local with close ties to the community. Therefore, they are the most experienced guides with real river experience. The Kaweah is a natural river, meaning rainfall and melted snow entirely control the flow of the water.
