Every year visitors from all over the world come to the Valley to experience the beautiful national parks in our backyard. We have the Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks in the South Valley, and Yosemite National Park to the north of us. So, to promote the proximity of these popular parks, several agencies have come together to form what's called the Majestic Mountain Loop. Dana Dierkes with the Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks, Donna Sisson with Yosemite National Park, and Jarrod Lyman with the Yosemite Visitors bureau.
Official debut of the Majestic Mountain Loop: a 3-day itinerary designed for people to explore the Yosemite National Park & Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. This innovative, collaborative marketing effort is being presented by Yosemite Sierra Visitors Bureau, Visalia Convention & Visitors Bureau, and Fresno Yosemite International Airport in cooperation with the National Park Service. This marks the first time the Fresno Yosemite International Airport, regional visitor bureaus, and the National Park Service have collaborated in marketing these iconic national parks in the Sierra Nevada. The event officially launches the Majestic Mountain Loop and will include the unveiling of a display case, which highlights the project.
The concept of the Majestic Mountain Loop is to promote the proximity of Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks and Yosemite National Park and to highlight the assets of each park by offering pre-crafted itineraries that show travelers how to experience all three parks in three days.
It also advises visitors that the Fresno Yosemite International Airport serves as a gateway airport for exploring the iconic national parks in the region. For more information, log onto www.majesticmountainloop.com.
