Walking in the footsteps of John Muir

Kings Canyon National Park is a wonderland for nature lovers. Cedar Grove boasts some of the park's best hiking, with trails winding through ancient forests, steep granite canyons, flower-strewn meadows and rumbling rivers. Keen hikers can also take on parts of the legendary John Muir Trail. With sun decks, hot tubs and stunning mountain views, Kings Canyon National Park vacation rentals will have you feeling utterly relaxed after a day on the trails. Kings Canyon is also crisscrossed with underground caves. With sparkling streams and dramatic stalactites, Crystal Cave offers a fascinating glimpse at what lies beneath the canopy.

Gaze up at General Grant

Kings Canyon National Park is famous for its enormous sequoia trees. The mighty General Grant Tree steals the spotlight, rising over 265-feet above the forest floor. With a girth of more than 100-feet it's classed as the second largest living tree on earth. Want to tick off number one? Head to Sequoia National Park, home to the gargantuan General Sherman Tree. For a glimpse at the incredible lifespans of sequoias, head to the Giant Forest Museum, which features a handful of interactive exhibits.

Summer road trips in the Sierras

Summer is high season in Central California, when flocks of sightseers descend on Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Park. Warm temperatures and long days make it the perfect time to swim, hike and park hop. While campgrounds and RV parks can feel impossibly crowded, Kings Canyon National Park vacation rentals feel wonderfully secluded. Winters can get snowy, with much of the park closing from November to April. If you are planning a winter getaway, it's best to arm yourself with an all-terrain vehicle and reliable snow tires.

Welcome to bear country

From its ancient sequoia groves to its soaring mountains, the grand proportions of Kings Canyon National Park never fail to impress. Kings Canyon anchors the park, carved by the South Fork of the Kings River. With a vertical drop of 8000 feet, it's the deepest gorge in the US. Remember, the Sierra Nevadas are classed as bear country, so, if you're hiking in the backcountry, don't forget to keep dogs leashed, make plenty of noise and carry bear spray. You should also keep an eye out for cougars and rattlesnakes.
