The Minarets in Sierra-Nevada - Minarets are visible from John Muir Trail and protected from development by Ansel Adams Wilderness. Much of Sierra Nevada is owned by U.S. Federal government and is either protected from development or strictly managed. Three National Parks (Yosemite, Kings Canyon, Sequoia), two National Monuments (Devils Postpile, Giant Sequoia), and 20-wilderness areas lie within the Sierra. These areas protect 15.4% of the Sierra's 24,370 sq mi from logging and grazing.
