The absolute best view we had in all our explorations in the Great Sequoia and King's Canyon N.P. Moro rock is a moderate hike to get through along a well marked and well traveled trail.
... carved into the granite of Moro Rock and you end up on top of the 6,500 foot in elevation rock that overlooks the canyon below and can see East to the High Sierras and West to the San Joaquin Valley to the West.

Congress Trail is an easy, enjoyable 2mile loop trail with breathtaking scenery including small waterfalls and,of course, the stars of the trail, the trees.
Unlike the Sherman tree section, where all the trees are fenced off and shown like exhibits in a museum, you'll get a much better feel for the magnitude and magnificence of the forest on this trail (so named for t...

If you want to stop off en-route and see all the amazing trees you will need to get there early as there so much to see, viewpoints, lakes and walks, picnic areas, public conveniences all along the route.
Though the General Sherman Tree in Giant Forest gets most of the press, and to be fair it's definitely iconic, my favorite the General Grant tree in this wonderful grove.

... a great way to enjoy the walk as I listened to music and after spending every waking minute w my kids and husband for 6 days straight, it was the perfect way to unwind and rejuvenate with nature and alone time!
From the trailhead to the falls is a gradually inclining hike through forest, alongside the river, and beneath granite slabs.
#8 of 39 Nature & Parks in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park
For those who may be apprehensive of climbing Moro Rock, this fairly short and easy hike to Eagle View will provide vistas that are nearly as good, and without the Moro Rock crowds.
There are a surprising number of Giant Sequoias along the Meadow loop, in addition to a high chance of wildlife sightings - we saw a bear, marmot, and many birds and small critters.

... much better; the boulder staircase section remains a tactile, fascinating scramble for anyone who loves granite and there's plenty of riverside trail to enjoy as an extension to your hike both up and downstream.
4) The trailhead is located in the Cedar Grove section of the park, which takes about an hour (more if you stop for photos, and you will, because the canyon is incredibly gorgeous) from the Grant Grove area.

We parked in the Giant Forest Museum parking area (across the street from the museum) and walked the access trail (5-10 minute walk) along Generals Hwy going north to the start of the Big Trees Trail (two-thirds m...
You can start this trails at several different locations, such as from the big tree museum, or from General Sherman area or the trail head if you can find space at parking lot.

If you stay in Grant Village (we stayed in John Muir Lodge) you just take the road to the right of the hotel up the hill on a curvy road to the peak where you have great views - we went for sunset.
Unless you're really pushed for time, once at the top take the trail to the right and walk along the ridge, you get views into Kings canyon on the left and then further along in to San Joachin valley on the right.

Awesome time to visit these huge trees.I am happy to see the General Grant and Sherman trees before they go up in flames from the wild fires of California.
#12 of 39 Nature & Parks in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park
From there if you choose, you can hike further into the canyon and follow the river which runs along the road to a beautiful meadow and picnic area.
Located almost at the end of the only road in Kings Canyon, a short but beautiful walk from the parking lot takes one to this roaring waterfall.
#13 of 39 Nature & Parks in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park
All tours are led by Sequoia Parks Conservancy Naturalists and are educational, entertaining and full of wonderful natural and human history.
My family and I took the family tour (appropriately enough) and it covers about three beautiful rooms with plenty of time to see everything and enjoy everything.
#14 of 39 Nature & Parks in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park
This is a must-stop along the Kings river – we found it to be much more enjoyable than Roaring River fall, which is also along the scenic drive
You can walk all the way up to the falls and get some nice pictures and even across the road on the river there are some great picture opportunities.
#15 of 39 Nature & Parks in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park
Our family of 12 adults and 13 kids of all ages had a blast swimming, floating on inner tubes, paddling around in rented canoe/paddleboards, playing on the beach, and enjoying nature.
Very nice trail encircles the entire lake I believe, though was only able to explore from the campground to across the dam and up to the Camps.
#16 of 39 Nature & Parks in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park
Really great trail to walk - fairly flat and easy, with opportunities to see some wildlife (small furries and mule deer in our case).
This was a great hike because it was more than just looking at a grove of amazing Sequoia's.

At Cold Springs Campground there is a terrific, relatively easy, nature trail that starts at campsite #6 and travels through lush meadows and stands of aspen and cottonwood near the banks of the East Fork River fo...
Recommend this airbnb if you are in California near the parks and want to stay at a nice clean apartment.

#19 of 39 Nature & Parks in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park
It is nicely shade, has alot of variation, saw marmots and a deer with a fawn, but best of all it has a spectacular 360 degree view at the top.
We saw a lot of beautiful flowers and wildlife, including a doe deer who led us on the trail down for a considerable distance before becoming bored with our company and moving off into the forest.

We decided on an out-and-back hike to Sugar Grove Bowl 4.8 miles RT (7.72 km) We made a stop at the Kings Canyon Visitor Center (near Grant Grove) to find out the condition of the 2 mile narrow dirt road to this t...
Stunning trail, well signed and managed but lots of flies the day we walked which was annoying.
#21 of 39 Nature & Parks in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park
The operation of the cave harkens back to earlier days of cave tours - you are allowed to get close to cave formations, wade across a stream that flows into the cave to get a better view of cave features.
He did a great job of pointing out the formations, took photos for us, and was both informative and fun!
#22 of 39 Nature & Parks in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park
Be prepared to double your effort to hike uphill if you hike this trail with snow and have spare socks and boots in your car.
Very easy hike with a well marked trail that is wide and well maintained.
#23 of 39 Nature & Parks in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park
The parking lot and trail head were easy to locate as well.
Small parking area at the trail start. 1 mile up, up, up till you get to the peak at the top.
#24 of 39 Nature & Parks in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park
Nice trail which tkes you north of the Grant Tree and away from most of the crowds.
This is an easily accessed trail right from the Grant Grove parking lot.
