“Impressive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

Of course tons of tourists but really nice to see up close. If you haven't been its a given you have to but also check out Big Tree Trail, Moro Rock, and Kings Canyon scenic highway.

“Of course, you can't miss him”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

Nice and easy walk, lots of people but still a superb view in a beautifull forest.
Everything is done to preserve it so you have to follow the walkways.
No way to go "wild".

Beautiful spot to walk around, plenty of easy trails to wander through. Maybe 30-50 minute drive from the park entrance.

“Unbelievable and Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

Wow, that's about all that needs to be said. Thank heavens for people like John Muir, Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, and all of the men and women who had the foresight to preserve such amazing beauty!!! If you haven't taken the time to check out these awe-inspiring trees, please go and see them. They definitely make you remember that we are just a "small" part of this wonderful planet. We followed the one day plan from Trip Advisor, and it was definitely worth it.http://c1.tacdn.com/img2/x.gifhttp://c1.tacdn.com/img2/x.gifhttp://c1.tacdn.com/img2/x.gifhttp://c1.tacdn.com/img2/x.gifhttp://c1.tacdn.com/img2/x.gif
