The Roads of Sequoia & Kings Canyon

Two main roads provide access to these very large parks. The Generals Highway runs from the Ash Mountain Entrance in the south part of Sequoia to the Kings Canyon Scenic Drive in Kings Canyon, passing through Sequoia National Forest on the way. The Kings Canyon Scenic Drive (CA-180) runs from the Big Stump Entrance of Kings Canyon to its end at an area appropriately known as Road's End. These roads provide excellent access to some very scenic areas, and of course sequoia groves. However, these parks are mostly backcountry, and vast tracts of both are completely roadless.
