  • It is an unforgettable tour to discover the beautiful and gigantic redwoods. The roads and trails are beautiful, changing contrasts and colors of the trees all the time especially in autumn.

  • Want to stretch your legs what better way than in the shadow of giants. It is about 1 mile and and easy walk and worth the effort.  more »
  • The trail leaves from the Museum and is quite short but gives a good selection of the giant Sequoia trees surrounding a small meadow. The trail loops around the meadow. A perfect introduction .  more »

Where to stay in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park

Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks provide plenty of lodging right inside their boundaries. Kings Canyon operates three lodges and a set of cabins, with two of the lodges and the cabins remaining open throughout the year. Of these, the John Muir Lodge sits closest to the entrance. The parks also offer more than a dozen campgrounds about equally distributed between them, with most operating on a first-come, first-served basis. Campsites fill up quickly on Friday nights in summer, but you should be able to find a place for your tent any other time during the week. Your accommodation options expand if you look along Sierra Road to the west of the parks. Motels, nature resorts, inns, bed and breakfasts, and lodges line the road, which runs alongside the North Fork Kaweah River.
