We only had 2 days to see the park, but were able to see quite a bit right from General's highway. There are lots of turnouts along the twisty road to grab a picture of it's beauty. There are many trails some even paved to view the Big Tree groves. Well worth the trip...unfortunately extreme drought and bark beetles are... More

We revisited Kings Canyon this year, after 10 years. It's still a fantastic place - although air pollution, drought and fires have damaged the pine forests quite severely.

A bit more out-of-the-way than Sequoia National Park but every bit as lovely. Best to do both parks together as each has its charms.
