  • My favourite national park in the Sierra. It is not as crowded as Sequoia and Yosemite and offers creat, solemn hikes which blow your mind. If you are not sure whether the additional 40 miles are worth it, please just go on if you want more than just a couple of photos.
  • Kings Canyon park adjacent to Sequoia park is easily accessible by car as well. You need to pay the toll for the roadway. For this one payment, however, you can access both the parks. You can descent from the peak above the canyone to its lowest place. See and hear the roaring river. Enjoy on your own body the Grizzly falls or sleep over in many of the camp grounds.
  • Awesome, awesome place. Takes like 5 minutes of walking to get to the major trees, but well worth it. I especially loved the museum that explained all about Sequoias and their life and everything. Cool place!
  • We visited here in may and it was not busy. Only one campground was open because the spring melt was still in full swing. Getting here is a long mountain drive on windy cliff face roads with spectacular views. You can only drive in a very small part of the park and it would best be visited if you plan to spend some time back country. Still a visit by car is worth it. Just breathtaking scenery.
  • Great place. We took the scenic drive all the way to the Meadow (forgot the name of it). Started around 10a, done by 4p. Nice lunch and lots of scenic stops.
