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

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

Questions & Answers

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.

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... More
