National Park
“Majority of the guests who stay at our Airbnb either are planning to visit Sequoia and/ or Yosemite National Park. But what they often miss is the beautiful Kings Canyon National Park that is in between the two more-well-known parks. What I often recommend to guests is to take Highway 180 East to Kings Canyon NP on their way to Sequoia National Park. It is relatively smaller than Sequoia NP, but offer a slightly different scenery. It is also less crowded as well. Guests can spend an hour or so there, and drive to Sequoia NP via Highway 198 West. There's a road near Grant Grove at Kings Canyon NP that can leads you directly to Sequoia NP instead of making a detour around. On your GPS device, type in Kings Canyon National Park, then Sequoia National Park as the destination, you will see the route. Alternatively, you can ask the park rangers at Kings Canyon NP, they will point you to the right direction. ”
