The 6km King's Canyon Rim Walk was a must do for us. The first part of the walk is the hardest, with a steep-ish climb. Once at the top, there is a little bit of undulation but it was relatively easy. Some great view points...More

The initial climb is the hardest part-walking around on the rim of the canyon is easy and with some beautiful vistas. The geology is fascinating. The lower walk is easier with more shade and birdlife. If you can arrive just before a bus load group...More

If you enjoy hiking the Kings Canyon Rim Walk is so worth the effort. Good hiking shoes or runners would be best worn as the beginning of the climb is over rocks and is rough. Once past the first 200 or so meters the walk...More

With a start of around 100 steps you could be forgiven for thinking this will be a tough walk. But not so. The steps are a wee bit of a challenge for some, but people of all ages young and old seem to manage pretty...More

Wonderful place to visit. Even it's not as huge and superior as the Grand Canyon in the US, but this one has its own style and different set of view. We took the 45 mins walk trail, the bottom view and echo sound at the...More

We did the Kings Canyon Rim Walk with our 16 yr old son. The first part was quite steep but once you are up the top it is amazing. It took us a little over 3 hours to do the loop including stopping to take...More

At first there is a tough climb but there is no need to rush. Once at the top it is a pretty gentle stroll and exceptionally beautiful with some great views. Birdlife was pretty active up here too with plenty to see and the opportunity...More

Did the 6km walk- stairs are a killer but well worth it, take your camera. Good walking shoes and a snack - take it slow

A highlight of our red centre holiday. The rim walk was superb and we took our time over 4 hours taking lots of photos and having a rest in the peaceful Garden of Eden. It has short steep start but is a pretty easy walk....More

The best part of Kings Canyon is doing the rim walk, taking about 3 hours or so, fantastic scenery, best done in the early morning. Not really sure if it’s something the younger children would appreciate after a long drive.
