If you don't have time to go to both park, then do Sequoia. It has more interesting and picturesque things to view - Giant forests etc

I would recommend Kings Canyon to anyone that is going to Sequoia Nat'l Park because it has amazing views as well as having close to no one there with limited traffic.

In many ways just as amazing as Sequoia. If you are in the area, take the time to visit. If it were not in the shadow of the more famous park next door, it would be world-famous.

We drove through Kings Canyon and admired the beautiful scenery through the Canyon. The stream at the bottom of the canyon was full and we loved just listening to it. We took some great pics through the Canyon.

Take the time to drive the 18 miles in to canyon and have lunch at Cedar Grove. Picnic tables are available there and the trout sandwich is pretty good. The raging rapids along road made the drive thrilling but not sure how exciting it would...More

We are travelling from Las Vegas mid April for 5 days to go hiking? Is this going to be ok weather to do this in? We have already seen Zion and The Grand Canyon, but are looking for somewhere with 5 hour max hikes with water, views and a bit of shade!

This is a great time in Kings Canyon. Expect some rain and even snow in the higher elevations. Check out: nps.gov for the latest weather alerts.
