Kings Canyon National Park

Located next to Sequoia National Park in California, Kings Canyon National Park is famous for sequoia trees, most notably the massive General Grant Tree in General Grove. Featuring meadows, canyons, rivers, and waterfalls- Cougars, bears, and rattlesnakes call this rugged national park home, so be cautious.


Don’t want the crowds of Yosemite but do want hulking granite domes in the Sierra Nevada? Kings Canyon National Park could be your ticket. Butting up to the south side of the Sierra National Forest, this one’s a Shangri-La of giant sequoia trees (don’t miss the General Grant specimen that’s 1,650 years old and a whopping 107 feet high!) and soaring mountains. Iconic tramping routes abound – both the Pacific Crest Trail and the John Muir Trail cross the entirety of the preserve.
