Kings Canyon National Park
Kings Canyon is treasured for its less-traveled serene stretches of incredible landscapes. With giant sequoias, crystal clear waters, green meadows, steep cliffs, and the deepest gorge-formed canyon in the nation, you'll no doubt want to add the park to your bucket list.
Must-sees include Cedar Grove, Zumwalt Meadow, Roaring River Falls, Mist Falls, and the second-largest tree in the world, the General Grant Tree. General Grant stands 267 feet tall with a base of nearly 29 feet. Known as “the Nation’s Christmas Tree”, there is a ceremony, “Trek to the Nation’s Christmas Tree” held by the Sanger District Chamber of Commerce each year on the second Sunday in December to honor this natural wonder.
