Kings Canyon National Park preserves a rugged and pristine portion of wilderness in California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains. Located just north of adjoining Sequoia National Park and to the southeast of Yosemite National Park, this park features deep, glacier-sculpted canyons, waterfalls, meadows, over 20 peaks that exceed 13,000 feet and some of the largest trees in the world!
Moro Rock may not immediately come to mind when you think of visitingSequoia National Park. There is no doubt that the most common reason for visiting this park is because of the trees, and they are impressive. But these trees only grow at an elevation between 5,000 and 7,000 feet, providing the opportunity for amazing views when you are able to get out of the tree cover.
Moro Rock in Sequoia National Park is one such place. It has amazing views, and provided you can navigate through the crowds it only takes a few minutes to get to from where you park your vehicle. Though it requires a bit stair climbing, you are sure to find this part of the park amazing and well worth your time.
If you have the ability to climb a few stairs in the high elevation, Moro Rock is a highly recommended stop in Sequoia National Park!
With the National Parks growing in popularity year after year, it can sometimes be hard to find a good hike that really allows you to just get away from it all. If getting off on your own for a few hours (or even a few days) is something that appeals to you, then you should check out these amazing Lake Chelan Hikes in North Cascades National Park.
If you are planning a visit to northwest Washington and one of the three amazing National Parks that the state has to offer, it is likely that you are wondering what the best hikes are in Mount Rainier National Park. After all, many of us do not have the time to take on every hike in the park, nor the energy (or the money) to make an expedition to the summit.
If you want to be immersed in this amazing landscape, then staying in one of the many Lassen National Park camping options is a perfect way to do so. Lodging in nearby towns, like Susanville, are certainly viable options, but there really are campgrounds in every part of the park, making it a much easier place to stay if you want to be able to drive into the park and stay here for days at a time.
