Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks are connected and operated as one. Foothills, Mineral King, Giant Forest & Lodgepole, Grant Grove, and Cedar Grove are the five distinct areas. Each region has its own distinct climate, characteristics, and highlights. The largest sequoia groves are found in Grant Grove and Giant Forest.
Here are some of the parks in Sequoia & King Canyons
1. The Giant Forest and Lodgepole - Only the western side of the Sierra Nevada has giant sequoia groves, and the Giant Forest may be one of the best. It is home to the world's largest living tree, the General Sherman Tree. Hiking trails wind through the meadows and sequoia grove. Moro Rock / Crescent Meadow Road leads to Moro Rock, Tunnel Log, and the High Sierra Trail, among other attractions. The Big Trees Trail, which encircles a meadow, is an easy hike suitable for families and wheelchair users. The Giant Forest Museum is open all year and features exhibits as well as park information and a park store.
Though Giant Forest has no campgrounds, there are two seasonal campgrounds in the Lodgepole region. Lodgepole Village has a seasonal tourist center, a store and cafeteria, showers, and other amenities in addition to camping. Wuksachi Lodge and Restaurant, which is open all year, is close by. Lodgepole routes take you not only to the Giant Forest, but also to alpine lakes and spectacular vistas of the High Sierra.
2. Grant Grove - General Grant National Park, established in 1890 to protect giant sequoias from logging, initially encompassed the Grant Grove region. Trails through a pure sequoia grove (the General Grant Grove) and one that was logged in the 1880s are available for day hiking at Grant Grove (the Big Stump Grove). The Grant Tree Trail leads to the world's second-largest tree, the General Grant Tree. The accessible Panoramic Point Trail leads to a viewpoint with stunning vistas of wilderness (open only when roads are not snowy).
3. Cedar Grove - The Kings River, whose canyon gave the park its name, runs through this glaciated valley, with towering cliffs, gushing waterfalls, and the mighty Kings River. North Dome (8,717 feet) and Grand Sentinel (8,518 feet) are two remarkable granite formations that stand 3,500 feet above the canyon floor. The area, particularly around Roads End, is home to a number of magnificent wilderness paths.
4. Mineral King - Mineral King Valley is reached via a steep, twisting route that leads to a place of rugged beauty. It's the highest point accessible by automobile in these parks, at 7800 feet (2375 meters). The Mineral King subalpine valley is home to lush pine, sequoia, and fir woods as well as colorful granite and shale landscapes.
5. The Foothills - A diversified environment regulated by the seasons can be seen just inside the entrance to Sequoia National Park. Rain awakens plants and wildflowers in the winter and spring, producing a hiker's paradise of green hills and moderate temps. Summer is characterized by hot and dry weather. The Kaweah River and its tributaries are followed by hiking routes here.
Sequoia National Park is an American national park located east of Visalia, California, in the southern Sierra Nevada. On September 25, 1890, the park was formed to protect 404,064 acres of forested mountainous territory. Mount Whitney, at 14,505 feet (4,421 m) above sea level, is the highest point in the contiguous United States, with a vertical relief of approximately 13,000 feet. The park is located south of and adjacent to Kings Canyon National Park; the Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks are managed by the National Park Service combined as the Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. The Sequoia-Kings Canyon Biosphere Reserve was established by UNESCO in 1976.
