A major feature of this area is Long Meadow, one of the finest sequoia groves in the national forest. The Trail of a Hundred Giants, a half-mile loop through this magnificent stand of trees, begins at the Redwood Meadow Campground. The trail is relatively flat and wheelchair accessible. Unusual features of the grove are the density of the big trees, the number of "twins"—two sequoias growing close together and sharing ground resources—and a "sequedar," a sequoia and a cedar that have grown together. A 25-mile stretch of the North Fork of the Kern River, designated a Wild and Scenic River, runs from north to south through the region. It offers fishing and challenging kayaking and whitewater rafting. And Cholollo Campground provides an unusual opportunity to camp on the Tule River Indian Reservation. Campgrounds included in this eTrail are: Methuselah, Hedrick Pond, Frazier Mill, Shake Camp, Hidden Falls, Moses Gulch, Balch County Park, Wishon, Belnap, Coy Flat, Quaking Aspen, Peppermint, Lower Peppermint, Leavis Flat, Holey Meadow, Redwood Meadow, Long Meadow, White River, Panorama, Frog Meadow, Cholollo, Headquarters, Camp 3, Hospital Flat, Kern River, Gold Ledge, Fairview, Limestone, Horse Meadow, Troy Meadow, Fish Creek, and Kennedy Meadows.
