Kings Canyon National Park is in the Sierra Mountain range in California, about 4-5 hours from San Francisco, and near Fresno, CA.
Kings Canyon is the nearby sister of Yosemite National Park. Yosemite is the one that is well known, beautiful, and popular, while Kings Canyon is the one with more personality. She isn't as flashy, but the variety and depth in her is rather astonishing.
Kings Canyon is located in the Sierra mountains. The high point is 10,051 feet and the low point is 2,260 feet. Needless to say, the drive from the high mountain roads toward the canyon floor in Cedar Grove will have your ears popping with such a dramatic descent.
