Cedar Grove

Cedar Grove is located at the bottom of Kings Canyon and features terrain similar to Yosemite Valley. Surprisingly, this is one of the least crowded areas of Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks!

Cedar Grove

Please note that Highway 180, Cedar Grove will close for the season on Tuesday, November 12, 2019.

Located 35 miles east of Grant Grove, Cedar Grove features a wide range of stunning natural wonders. The area is known for its towering cliffs, massive trees, cascading waterfalls, the powerful Kings River, and Kings Canyon, which inspired the park's name.

Two prominent rock formations -- North Dome at 8,717 feet and Grand Sentinel at 8,518 feet -- rise to dizzying heights above the canyon floor. Many spectacular trails to the backcountry also originate in the Cedar Grove area.

Pack a picnic lunch, grab your hiking shoes, and journey to the Roads End on Highway 180. Make sure to stop and take in the spectacular views from the many scenic viewpoints this area offers. Don't forget a camera, and be sure to give yourself at least a few hours for hiking, sightseeing, and enjoying the beautiful natural backdrops provided by the canyon.

After you've fully unplugged and immersed yourself in the stunning surroundings of the High Sierra sans cell phone, tablet, or laptop, you can reconnect in Cedar Grove with access to Wi-Fi while you grab a bite to eat or pick up unique gifts and souvenirs from the Cedar Grove Market.

Located next to the Cedar Grove Snack Bar, the Cedar Grove Market offers everything from the essentials to unique knickknacks to help you commemorate your visit to the park. Looking for a great deal? Stop by the Cedar Grove Market around October to take advantage of excellent end-of-the-season sales.

Plan your visit to Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks and be sure to set aside some time to explore all that Cedar Grove Village has to offer!
