The beauty of King’s Canyon rivals Yosemite, minus the crowds. Our favorite top 5 spots that we covered in 1 DAY are:

  1. Grizzly Falls
  2. Roaring River Falls
  3. Grant Grove with General Grant Tree (268 ft tall!)
  4. General Sherman Tree (largest tree on Earth by volume!) and Congress trail
  5. Moro Rock (6,725 ft but only 300 ft hike)

First 3 spots are on King’s Canyon Scenic Byway – you can do this drive in one day in a leisurely pace with a picnic stop for lunch. Last 2 are on whats known as Generals Highway – you could combine that with Scenic Byway in the same day, but if you have time, spending the whole day here would be the best.
