Kings Canyon National Park gives casual hikers a taste of life among the sequoias without asking for too much in return. This California park has a wide range of loop trails leading to its famous groves. When it comes to camping in Kings Canyon National Park, the Redwood Canyon campsite is an absolute must. Some hikers pass through the park as a part of their Pacific Crest Trail or John Muir Trail thru-hikes, while others travel up from Sequoia National Park, directly to the south.
