Sequoia and King's Canyon National Parks are often treated as one despite their glaring dissimilarities. The former is more user friendly for the average park visitor while the latter is truly the domain of the intrepid backpacker. Truth be known, there are both aspects to each park with Sequoia having its share of lengthy treks and King's Canyon featuring the General Grant Grove, perhaps more fitting to its sister park. It seems the parks would have been better split, east and west rather than their north and south configuration but the politics of park formation is something that matters little to those who visit them.
For that reason, this page deals with features of both parks and concentrates on the easier more accessible parts of them. While backpackers at heart, following an extended hearty exploration of Yosemite, we were more in the mood for short strolls amongst the gentle giants that take the name sequoia. These magical trees rarely fail to strike awe in all who choose to stand beside them.
These are great backpacking parks so if so inclined do bring one but a small day pack will suffice for the short strolls... more travel advice
It was also true that this park devoted entirely to such trees was joined to King's Canyon National Park to form one... more travel advice
