Kings Canyon National Park
A national park favorite for many national park lovers, Kings Canyon is treasured for its less-traveled serene stretches of unbelievable and widely varied landscapes, with giant sequoias, crystal clear waters, green meadows, steep cliffs, and not to mention arguably the deepest canyon in the nation. Must-sees include Cedar Grove, Zumwalt Meadow, Roaring River Falls, Mist Falls, and the second-largest tree in the world, the General Grant Tree. General Grant stands 267 feet tall and has a base of nearly 29 feet. Known as “the Nation’s Christmas Tree”, there is a ceremony, “Trek to the Nation’s Christmas Tree” held by the Sanger District Chamber of Commerce each year on the second Sunday in December to honor this natural wonder.
