#2 of 31 Outdoor Activities in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park
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.
The Sierra Nevada Mountains are full of granite domes, the most famous being Half Done in Yosemite National Park; Moro Rock in Sequoia National Park is a much smaller one that, happily, is easily accessible by car...

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...
Take your time, take plenty of pictures, listen to the breeze in the trees, witness the wildlife and see the beams of sunlight illuminate the forest.

We were staying in John Muir lodge and from there this is a 20 minute walk down a forest trail (starts at the Grant Grove visitor centre - pick up a trail map inside), much more pleasant than driving!

It is a long drive on the Kings Canyon Scenic Byway from Grant Grove Village Visitor Center to Roads End, but it is indeed scenic and winding with varying and beautiful canyon, river, and mountain views.
You see such a variety of landscape, from tall snowy mountain peaks, to grassy meadows, rocky formations along the road and beautiful water falls.
#7 of 31 Outdoor Activities in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park
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.
Really enjoyed walking this trail, beautiful scenery, gorgeous trees and we saw some deer and other wildlife.

The Generals highway is a peaceful hour plus drive from General Sherman to General Grant Trees, it links northwest and southern access to the Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks...
#9 of 31 Outdoor Activities in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park
... 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.
#10 of 31 Outdoor Activities in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park
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.
#11 of 31 Outdoor Activities in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park
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.
The road passes the John Muir Lodge and is about a mile to a mile and a half to the parking area at the end; paved, but very narrow in spots with sharp, treacherous turns and limited visibility.
#12 of 31 Outdoor Activities 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).
Thank goodness John Muir helped put a stop to the logging.

#14 of 31 Outdoor Activities in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park
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.
The granite Little Baldy dome was a bit too scary for me to climb but others did it and it affords grand unimpeded views of the mountain range.
#15 of 31 Outdoor Activities in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park
... 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 trail, since it had snowed a couple days prior.
Stunning trail, well signed and managed but lots of flies the day we walked which was annoying.
#16 of 31 Outdoor Activities in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park
They are located about 1 mile north of the Visitor's Center in Grant Grove, about 3.5 miles from the Big Stump Entrance to the Park.
Thank You Grant Grove Stables for a terrific first time ride for my daughter.
#17 of 31 Outdoor Activities 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.
There were many spectacular views along the trail with the top of Baldy absolutely breathtaking in all directions.
#18 of 31 Outdoor Activities in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park
The scenery changes from foothill chaparral through giant sequoia to alpine valley at the top.
#19 of 31 Outdoor Activities 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.
#20 of 31 Outdoor Activities 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.
