Very kid friendly and worth the hour long drive from Sequoia. Plan to spend 1-1.5 hours exploring with young kids here.

Unlike the trudge back from the Sherman tree, this stroll around the Grant Grove, is flat , short and shady. Beautiful trees , well maintained, well marked and close parking

Unless you plan to do a lot of hiking or just sitting around relaxing along the river you will not need a full day in Kings Canyon.
