Wilderness Vagabond Trip Reports
Kings Canyon National Park, located nearby the forever popular Yosemite National Park, is made up of two sections. The smaller of the two, General Grant Grove, protects the largest natural grove of giant sequoia trees. Covering 3100 acres, this section of the park and the grove are easily accessed over paved highways. The remainder of Kings Canyon Park can only be reached over Route 180 (Kings Canyon Scenic Byway). This route only allows auto travel to a very small percentage of the park, leaving the remainder of the wilderness for those traveling on foot.
