Wuksachi Lodge is located just minutes away from the major sights in Sequoia National Park, including the star attraction, the General Sherman Tree, which means less time spent in the car and more time to explore. Sequoia National Park is home to over 800 miles of hiking trails ranging from easy to strenuous, which can double in the winter time as cross-country ski or snowshoe trails. Cave tours, sightseeing tours, and horseback riding are available nearby.

Long before the green movement became a trend, Wuksachi Lodge has been dedicated to preserving the environment and minimizing our impact on natural resources. We are ISO-14001 certified, and some of the things we do to promote environmental responsibility are:
- Using motion detectors to conserve lighting energy
- Using hybrid and electric vehicles
- Minimal outdoor lighting around the property
- Using hand dryers in our restrooms instead of paper towels
- Using bulk dispensers for things such as breakfast cereals, sugar, salt, pepper, etc, rather than individual packets or containers
- Waterless urinals in the men's room to conserve water
- Using organic and sustainable products in retail and food and beverage
Our parent company, Delaware North Companies, also has an environmental management system called GreenPath. This is a formal documented environmental preservation plan that covers just about everything we could think of to preserve and protect our natural resources.
Wuksachi Lodge even earned a Star of the Industry Award in Good Earthkeeping from the California Hotel & Lodging Association!
