With mountain peaks reaching past 4,250 m (14,000 ft) and trees stretching to over 75 m (250 ft) high, Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks present nature on a grand scale.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes General Sherman Tree, General Grant Tree Trail, Kings Canyon National Park, and other attractions you added. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Roaring River Falls and Project Survival's Cat Haven. Take a break from the city and head to Grizzly Falls and Little Lakes Valley Trail. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park: Mount Whitney Trail (in Lone Pine), Mountain Light Gallery (in Bishop) and The Senate (in Three Rivers). There's lots more to do: trek along Big Trees Trail, don't miss a visit to Tunnel Rock, and explore the wealth of natural beauty at Inyo National Forest.
