This is a very beautiful National Park. Not to be missed. Great drive just past Project Cat Haven. Cat Haven in itself is a must see also. They help preserve endangered species of wild cats. Great walking tour, viewing some of the worlds majestic creatures.

The redwoods are natural wonders that everyone should have on their booklet list! The size is mind boggling. We did not make it as far as kings canyon. Next time! Climbed up to Moro rock. Spectacular views! Pretty drive in. Nothing bad to say. Go!!

We loved Kings Canyon and enjoyed it more than Yosemite. The hikes at Grant's Grove were stunning. We also did Kings Canyon Scenic Drive and Zumwalt Meadow (a must due to a very scenic drive). The snow melt was in full force and the streams...More

Although little hiking along the 30 mile stretch is available, the drive is spectacular. You get mountains, views, valleys and river. The entire time was just gorgeous and we liked it more than Sequoia.

The road drops 5,000 feet to the level of the river. There are many turnouts where you can pull over and allow cars following you to pass. Quite some views into the mountains and the canyon, unspoiled by few guard rails. Remember to down shift...More

We visited in springtime and the river and the waterfalls were spectacular. Make sure you drive down into the Kings Canyon and don't miss Grizzly Falls.

Traffic was mild and we appreciated being able to be there in the 'off season' and enjoy the quiet beauty of a beautiful place in this park.

We are travelling from Las Vegas mid April for 5 days to go hiking? Is this going to be ok weather to do this in? We have already seen Zion and The Grand Canyon, but are looking for somewhere with 5 hour max hikes with water, views and a bit of shade!

Trying to figure out whether we can stay in Wuksachi and comfortably cover both Sequoia and Kings Canyon or if we should stay a couple of nights in each park. Spent 12 days in Yellowstone and really got tired of all the driving.
