A fun scenic drive. Not that many places to stop by on the way down so better fill up your gas tank. Nice waterfall at the end. Definitely worth a half day trip to take a break from the Sequoias and crowds.

In the Sequoia NP be ready for the lines if you would like to take a picture with the famous huge trees. In the Kings canyon we experienced less crowds and neat backcountry hike.

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

Do not know about air quality at Kings Canyon. Kings Canyon might be worth a trip but it is not really a substitute for Yosemite when it comes to the views but I understand your fire considerations.
