The Majestic Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks
Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks in California will expand your perspective, renew your spirit and challenge your sense of wonder. Like the sky-piercing trees that grow only here, Sequoia and Kings Canyon’s scale is ancient and epic. This is dynamic, full-screen Sierra recreation, on a level that field guides and trail maps only begin to reveal.
Come to this wild corner of the California Sierra and rekindle your connection with nature, under the General Grant and General Sherman Tree, along rocky banks of the Kings River, inside serpentine crystal caverns, below a roaring waterfall, or above timberline on a talus trail.
Infinity-edge vista points reveal the scenic splendor of these adjacent national parks. They also come with an open invitation to leave the pavement behind and engage them. Campgrounds, picnic tables, and hiking trails cover Sequoia and Kings Canyon parks. This is more than a dashboard travel destination. Rather, one for kicking up some gritty Sierra sand, wading into cool swimming holes, casting fishing lines, snowshoeing by giant red trees, sharing campfires, and chasing shooting stars.Google+
