*Kings Canyon National Park is a U.S. National Park in the southern Sierra Nevada, east of Fresno, California. The park was established in 1940 and covers 462,901 acres (187,329 ha). It incorporated General Grant National Park, established in 1890 to protect the General Grant Grove of Giant Sequoias, which is also the home of our nations Christmas Tree "General Grant", the second largest tree in the world at 267 ft. tall.
Kings Canyon is also home to Redwood Canyon, the largest remaining grove of sequoia trees in the world. "Kings Canyon" is officially the deepest canyon in the United States at over a mile and a half deep.
The park is north of and contiguous with *Sequoia National Park; the two are administered by the National Park Service together.
*Sequoia National Park, (the second oldest Park in the U.S.) is only 25 miles south of the Kings Canyon freeway/ Generals Hwy turnout, in the southern Sierra Nevada in central California. Sequoia National Park serves as a prime example of nature's size, beauty, and diversity. With the world’s largest tree, (General Sherman-274.9 ft.tall), grand mountains, 800 miles of hiking trails, rugged foothills, deep canyons, vast caverns, and the highest point in the lower 48 states (Mt. Whitney), it is a place that attracts 1.6 million visitors a year from across the U.S. and the world. Visitor activities vary by season and elevation.
*Yosemite National Park is a United States National Park spanning eastern portions of Tuolumne, Mariposa and Madera counties in east central California, United States. The park covers an area of 761,268 acres (3,080.74 km2) and reaches across the western slopes of the Sierra Nevada mountain chain. Over 3.7 million people visit Yosemite each year: most spend their time in the seven square miles (18 km2) of Yosemite Valley.
Designated a World Heritage Site in 1984, Yosemite is internationally recognized for its spectacular granite cliffs, waterfalls, clear streams, Giant Sequoia groves, and biological diversity. Almost 95% of the park is designated wilderness. Although not the first designated national park, Yosemite was central to the development of the national park idea, largely owing to the work of people like Galen Clark and John Muir.
Yosemite is one of the largest and least fragmented habitat blocks in the Sierra Nevada, and the park supports a diversity of plants and animals. The park has an elevation range from 2,127 to 13,114 feet (648 to 3,997 m) and contains five major vegetation zones: chaparral/oak woodland, lower montane, upper montane, subalpine, and alpine. Of California's 7,000 plant species, about 50% occur in the Sierra Nevada and more than 20% within Yosemite.
