Cambria to Sequoia and Kings Canyon Np then Yosemite June 20

We are looking to tweak our itinerary and rather than head straight from Cambria to Yosemite we though we would go via Sequoia/Kings Canyon with one overnight stop somewhere along the way.

As we are coming from Scotland I am planning using Google maps so would appreciate some on the ground advice on the best route to take and where to stay, that is nothing fancy but has eating place near by.

We particularly want to se big trees and lovely scenery and would do a 2/3 hour hike if it is for something spectacular!

Any help greatly appreciated.

From Cambria, drive south on Highway 1 4 miles to the Highway 46/Green Valley Road left turn. Continue east on Highway 46 toward Paso Robles, connect with Highway 101 north for 4 miles to Highway 46 East toward Fresno/Bakersfield. Take the left turn for Highway 41 just past Cholame and continue to Highway 198 for Sequoia.

The route described by Kibblesmom is about 210 miles and should take 5 hours of driving time plus time spent at stops along the way, at least according to Google Maps. Highway 198 in the park has over 100 curves as you ascend from the park entrance to the Giant Forest area. If you are prone to motion sickness, take Dramamine and/or ginger root pills before the drive, and watch the center line of the road.
