We visited the park in early October 2018. For those that don't know, there are two parts to Kings Canyon National Park. Grants Grove is the original park, and covers the area surrounding the giant sequoia groves around Grants Grove. It's quite small considering the...More

The primary road into Kings Canyon is closed in October 2018 for repair. So all that there is to do in the park is the Grant Grove and the Panorama Point (both good things to see).

I highly recommend a visit here. Pictures do not do it any justice. It is truly a national treasure.

A very rugged park and the road is slow and windie but very worthwhile. Due to elevation changes you see many different plants and trees.

Would highly recommend the detour to Kings Canyon if you’re visiting Yosemite. Far quieter with amazing views across the Canyon. The drive along Cedar Drive was gorgeous with hardly any cars on the road but the views certainly equalled those at Yosemite without the stress...More
