Kings Canyon NP contains the Grant Grove which has the General Grant Sequoia and many others. Another big draw is the King Canyon which has been carved by the King river. The park road starts at about 7,000 feet and drops very fast to 3,000 feet. The Canyon has steep granite walls and is very picturesque.
