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.
Visiting Grant Grove and Giant Forest will get you outdoors. Get out of town with these interesting Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park side-trips: Lake Kaweah (in Lemon Cove), Trail of 100 Giants (in Ponderosa) and Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias (in Yosemite National Park). There's much more to do: explore the striking landscape at Moro Rock, take in breathtaking views at Kings Canyon National Park, examine the collection at Museum of Western Film History, and admire all the interesting features of Generals Hwy.
