“Impressive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

Of course tons of tourists but really nice to see up close. If you haven't been its a given you have to but also check out Big Tree Trail, Moro Rock, and Kings Canyon scenic highway.

“Of course, you can't miss him”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

Nice and easy walk, lots of people but still a superb view in a beautifull forest.
Everything is done to preserve it so you have to follow the walkways.
No way to go "wild".

Beautiful spot to walk around, plenty of easy trails to wander through. Maybe 30-50 minute drive from the park entrance.
