National Park Highlight

Take a trip to the “land of giants” and experience the world’s largest trees, massive mountains, deep canyons, and a diversity of landscapes. There is so much beauty in Sequoia National Park and a rich history, so grab the family and make the trip! The Sequoias are only accessible via Kings Canyon National Park currently so there are even more opportunities for adventure at both national parks. There is a range of activities to do during any season at these parks, some of the activities to do in winter include skiing, snowshoeing, hikes to viewpoints, and wintery drives. The drive to Kings Canyon National Park is just over 12 hours, or if you would prefer to make the trip shorter there is also the option to fly into Los Angeles and then drive 4 ½ hours to Kings Canyon. The national parks are absolutely breathtaking and well worth the visit. This would be a great trip for a week long break or even a long weekend with the whole family!

This is a scenic trail with bay tree-covered foothills and a great hike for winter! In fact, this trail is said to be too hot to hike from June through September. It is one of the few trails that are currently open due to after effects of the fires, it is one of the more challenging hikes if you are looking for a workout. The length of the hike is 9.6 miles and during the hike you should expect to climb 2260 feet in elevation. The trail is very well maintained and relatively bushy, it overlooks Moro Rock above while the rivers can be heard roaring below. Towards the end you can expect to pass through patches of mixed broadleaf forest, and then you’ll eventually enter the forest just before descending to Panther Creek.
