At a Glance

Standing amid the majesty of the Sierra Nevada, it's not hard to understand why Sequoia and Kings Canyon have been enshrined in our National Park System. Walk in Kings Canyon and discover how the granite cliffs of Grand Sentinel and North Dome were carved through the eons, and visit spots where John Muir delivered impassioned speeches in defense of the magnificent Sierra wilderness.

Best of all, you'll ...

  • Be awestruck in the cathedral-like Giant Forest by the General Sherman Tree, more than 2,000 years old and with a girth of 203 feet.
  • Enjoy “An Evening With John Muir” as the Scott-born American naturalist colorfully recounts his adventures in nature
  • Walk into Zumwalt Meadow, which affords excellent views of the meandering Kings River, a lush meadow and surrounding high granite cliffs.
