Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks

These two adjoining national parks in California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains holds some of the largest trees in the world – Giant Sequoias – as well as brut mountain scenery. Named after the giant redwood trees it preserves, Sequoia National Park is a collection of redwood groves spread out along the rugged Sierra foothills. The centerpiece of Kings Canyon National Park is Kings Canyon itself, which is a mile deep glacial-cut valley reaching far into the heart of the Sierras.

Both parks are situated next to each other, making it easy to see the features of both parks in a day or two. Both parks are home to the largest concentration of Giant Sequoias, a smattering of waterfalls, and offer a variety of rocky Sierra Nevada Mountain scenery.
