Definitely a beautiful place in the park. Plenty of places to park and then walk around to see the Sequoias. You can walk along other trails towards a beautiful ridge. Also visited a house built & lived in during the 1800s.

The day we visited and hiked around it snowed, which made for an eve more enjoyable experience. We gathered snow off the rails and had a snowball fight, which was fun. The trail was wonderful, and the sights were breath-taking. Overall, a very enjoyable experience.

So many things to see in the Kings Canyon and Sequoia Parks. They are so worth the drive and worth the time spent exploring and reconnecting. Beautiful

It's an easy loop trail to the General Grant tree. Unfortunatly we had the bad luck there stopped a big French tourist bus at the same time as us, so the path was a bit crowded. The walk along the trees was good, but we...More

Unless you plan to do a lot of hiking or just sitting around relaxing along the river you will not need a full day in Kings Canyon.
