Great national park for a weekend visit. Check on the roadwork before you go. We managed to be there for both major roadwork and a controlled burn, that even though it was cancelled, still made the air less than good. But the park itself is...More

First, Sequoia National Park is an amazing place to appreciate the awesomely huge and long living sequoia trees. The National Park Service (NPS) has preserved a wonderful place for future generations. The NPS has built and has maintained nice facilities to provide access to all...More

We entered the park via 198 from Three Rivers and exited the park via 180 toward Fresno CA. This was one of the most magnificent trips I have ever been on. The sheer magnitude of these old giants of the forest are beyond my description....More

Definetly worth the visit. There are very windy and narrow roads. If you are coming into the park or leaving by Three Rivers- beware the roads are very steep and winding. Overall the National Park is amazing. General Sherman is a must see!

We really enjoyed our time in both Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks. The drives into, around and out of the parks are amazing. The views, at all times of the days, are interesting and unique. There are great mountain hikes and you can find...More

Potential change to our itinerary that wondering if anyone has suggestions on for a full day visit to SEKI in late June 2019 tied in to an LA visit. Won't be doing any major hikes but would like to see both parks. 1) land at LAX at 10am Thursday morning and drive straight to the SEKI via 180 and stay in Grant Grove area. This would be an early evening arrival and not offer much time for sightseeing but would allow for an early start Friday to drive down into Kings Canyon and backtrack down to Seqouia and either stay at Wuksachi or in Three Rivers. Backtrack to Burbank Saturday morning to get in a half day of sightseeing there. 2) land at LAX at 10am Thursday morning and drive to SEKI via 198, staying the night at Wuksachi/Stony Creek. Early start Friday morning exploring main sites in Sequoia before heading into Kings Canyon and back with a stay in Grant Grove area or BnB's right outside the park along 180. 3) other thought is to spend the Thursday we fly in doing a half day of sightseeing around Burbank and then get an early start Friday to drive to SEKI probably via 180. That would allow for a half day to drive down into Kings Canyon and back with an overnight stay in Grant Grove. Then spend Saturday driving down into Sequoia and then exit through 3 Rivers with a stay either there or preferably in Exeter/Visalia to cut down on the travel Sunday morning back to Burbank to get a half day sightseeing there. I realize one day is not doing justice for SEKI but unfortunately our vacay is moreso a LA trip and I'm making a sidestop to hit a bucket list item. Any help is greatly appreciated.
