Kings Canyon often takes second seating to Sequoia National Park.
It’s so bad that I can’t write a first sentence about Kings Canyon without mentioning Sequoia National Park (see above).
However, the northerly partner within this pair of parks has its own highlights (say that 10x fast). It’s in Kings Canyon—just east of Fresno, California—that visitors will find the General Grant Grove, home to the second largest tree in the world, and the Redwood Mountain Grove, the largest natural grove of Giant Sequoia trees in existence. Kings Canyon itself (emphasis on the “canyon” here) ranks as one of the deepest in the nation and boasts an impressive collection of cave systems. Uber outdoorsy folk take note: the park is also adjacent to (and provides access via foot and horseback) the lofty Sierra Crest, where elevations climb above 14,000 to rival the peaks of Rocky Mountain National Park.
