Rode through Kings Canyon in Sept 2016 from Edmonton Alberta on a Indian motor cycle with my wife for our 32nd anniversary. What a trip too remember. The trees ,mts and valleys with the creek running.

This was an amazing place, so beautiful. A river running through a canyon, lots of places to stop and see, waterfalls that were easily accessible. Took the Zumwalt trail at the end of the canyon, nice trail. Didn't see any bears or deer though.

This tour was directed by Savannah with help from Meghan. As a former teacher I was impressed with Savannah drawing Meghan into the tour. The tour took us to see General Grant's tree along with many other spectacular "Giants". The views of Kings Canyon, as well as the information supplied by Savannah, made this a trip everyone should be able... More

We were awe struck from one end of the park to the other, there was so much to see and it was hard to take it all in. Hope to come back one day!

I would definitely recommend spending some time here. If you are an avid hiker, you will love it. While there are not a lot of formal trails, it's a vast wilderness with endless vistas to explore.

Really enjoyed visiting this national park. Stayed in a cabin at kings canyon. Perfect for those a wanting a rough camping experience and still have a real bed to sleep on a night. The down side was the yellow jackets were really bad and no traps of any kind where up to help with that problem. Up side saw deer... More

Mistake #1- staying in Tulare and trying to see the park in one day. Mistake #2 - going to the park on a week end (and Labor Day to boot). This place was under rated on my radar and deserves a full 2 days to explore. Suggest booking a room at one of the park lodges in advance and wandering... More

We did the highlights of Sequoia in the morning and planned on Kings Canyon in the afternoon. Although we were able to see Sherman Tree, Grants Tree then head to Kings Canyon, I wished we had an extra hour or two for the canyon. We drove to "the end of the road", checked out Roaring River Falls, got out for... More

Kings Canyon was so nice. It was not crowded at all. We were not forced to take a shuttle to different places. The road is very windy, but it is well worth the trip. There were some beautiful views along the way. We hiked to Mist Falls. I do not understand why Trip Advisor does not have it on its... More
