Considering it's right next door, it's surprising how different the scenery is. Still awesome, just different. We only had a day so didn't have time for any long walks - just short ones around the General Grant tree, the Mark Twain stump and to Zumwalt...More

Plan to spend some time exploring and taking it all in. Truly lovely. We went in January but would love to go in various seasons to see the changes. Worth the drive

Hidden gem as far as I'm concerned. Being from the east, we had not even heard of King's Canyon NP until we did the research prior to this trip. The views along the drive in the actual canyon are magnificent. Great spots for day (or...More

It's a long drive to the 'Road end point' in the canyon, but it's really worth your time. You have amazing views. There are a lot of good places to stop and take pictures. When in the area, don't skipp this part!

No, no train or trams. Make sure your car's gas tank is sufficiently full enough, as there are no gas stations down there.
