Sequoia National Park and Kings Canyon National Park are home to natural giants and some of the most beautiful scenery America has to offer. These two parks are connected to each other, which makes it easy to see two National Parks on one trip! Most people end up doing both. During our visit, we camped one night in Sequoia and one night in Kings Canyon.
15 AMAZING THINGS TO DO IN SEQUOIA NATIONAL PARK + KINGS CANYON
1. The Giant Forest
The Giant Forest is exactly like it sounds. When you walk amongst these amazingly huge trees you’ll feel really small (but in a good way). On this trail, you will find the General Sherman Tree, the largest tree in the world by volume, weighing 1,385 tons! Also, check out the President Tree (the 3rd largest tree) and the 2-mile Congress Trail that takes you on a nice stroll away from the crowds.
2. Climb the Steps of Moro Rock
Rising above the Giant Forest, you can climb 400 stone steps to the summit of the granite dome to get some of the best views of the park. Be sure to keep your eye out as you’re driving through the park to get views of it from a distance as well.
