An underground attraction located less than 10 miles northwest of downtown, this unique example of human engineering offers a cool activity in the summer. Construction of these underground gardens started in the early 1900s by Sicilian immigrant Baldassare Forestiere as he built patios, grottos, and intricate stonework by hand. After forty years of subterranean toil, Forestiere built a truly unique labyrinth of underground rooms, passageways, and planters for numerous fruit-bearing trees.

Other natural features include multiple 14,000-foot (4,300 m) peaks, high mountain meadows, swift-flowing rivers, and some of the world's largest stands of giant sequoia trees. Kings Canyon is north of and contiguous with Sequoia National park, and both parks are jointly administered by the Nation al park Service as theSequoia and King Canyon National Parks.
Sierra National Park was the second National Forest created in California and the largest at the time. It covered over six million acres (24,000 km2) of the Sierra Nevada and was about four times the average area of typical California National Forests. Originally it embraced parts of eight counties from Tuolumne on the north to Kern on the south and Mono and Inyo on the east. Initially its name was descriptive, but later when the Sierra was divided into different units this was no longer the case.
