My wife and I thoroughly were humbled by God's creation as we were able to spend a week of hiking in Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks. The ganduer of living things over 2,000 years old continually filled us with awe as we walked among...More
It is truly a magical place, with the biggest trees I´ve ever seen. However, it has been "civilised" since the last time I visited. The path to General Sherman (the biggest tree in the world) has been paved, making it too easy for visitors to...More
We spent a week exploring and our favorite hikes were to Pear Lake vía the Watch Tower (spectacular) and the Sugar Bowl Loop on Redwood Mountain. We did Mist Falls, which was lovely, but just too crowded to enjoy.
We didn't get to see Kings Canyon, but Sequoia was a beautiful place. The trees were amazing, the hikes were great. I loved visiting here. Be warned, the road in if you are coming from the south is very slow and twisty.
Amazing , amazing, amazing!!
Words cannot do justice to the beauty of these places.
Both Sequoia and kings canyon national parks are treasures.
Kings Canyon is a little less crowded and the Grant Grove is beautiful beyond words.
Great history and a truly worthwhile visit.
As a kid I was always fascinated by these giant trees, remember the old pic with the car driving through the Sequoia? Stayed in Visalia and drove two hours up to the park on Labor Day. Bucket list worthy! The oldest tree in the world...More
I had great time at Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks, it's a short weekend stay and I really enjoy it and hope to stay longer. But if you only have two short days, you are still be able to visit the most popular spots...More
Coming from FL to CO then on to Kings Canyon camping was beautiful. Being the only people in the campground, found it thrilling to find friends, Eva & James, from our FL home camping there also. Hugged the biggest tree that I have ever witnessed....More

At the end of May 2018 my wife and I visited Sequoia and Kings Canyon from about noon on a Thursday until about 3pm on Friday. Overnight was in Three Rivers but there would have been much less driving if we had gotten a room in Sequoia. On Thursday we drove to Sequoia and took several short hikes through the big trees then drove back to Three Rivers. On Friday we checked out about 8am and headed back through Sequoia and all the way to the end of Kings Canyon. Coming out of Kings Canyon we took several short hikes - the drive was well worth the effort. Friday night we stayed in Visalia.

July and August are not the best times to visit California parks, as visitor volumes peak during those months. We visited Sequoia & Kings Canyon in Sept and there was plenty of room for parking. We saw several wildfires during our trip (one on the way to Yosemite) and those cannot be predicted in advance. Given the closures in Yosemite, there might be some overflow, but hard to predict.
