“Car sick but worth it..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Thru out my life Ive visited the parks, But I think Kings Canyon is so much more beautiful than Sequoia park. All our parks in california have their own stamp on the state. All are worth visiting. But I get car sick and my husband and grand child thought it was funny. Next time Im driving.....

“Amazing and tranquil giants of nature”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Finally took the time to visit Sequoia National Park and I am so glad we did. The drive to the park through rolling hills that gradually climbed to the park was beautiful. Don't hurry on these winding roads, enjoy the variety of scenery until the road grows more winding and darkens from the shade and you smell the aroma of the giant redwoods. Take the time to explore the turnouts and trails. A short walk will take you from most of the crowd into the cool, quiet shade of these giant trees which have provoked wondrous response for hundred of years. We went on a week day in the fall and the crowds had thinned but consessions were also closed or had more limited hours. Don't miss this place - it touched me in ways I did not expect.

“Fantastic Views....but scary driving!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

I love the mountain views....but the driving was unnerving. Very narrow, twisty roads not wide enough for two cars.
