Kings Canyon & Sequoia National Parks
These two adjacent national parks are separate parks but a single fee allows entrance to them both. More remote than Yosemite, the vast majority of their interior is back-country wilderness which can be explored on a network of hiking trails. Huge sequoia trees are one of the key attractions of the two parks, found in several groves, along with spectacular scenery that ranges from forested foothills to high mountains, deep canyons and the raging Kings River.
Kings Canyon and Sequoia are flanked by some of America’s tallest mountains, including 14,491-foot-high Mt Whitney, the highest in the contiguous United States.
