Hike the Parks: Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks: Best Day Hikes, Walks, and Sights

We rated this book:


Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks live in the shadow of Yosemite, one of the most popular and famous national parks. Sequoia & Kings Canyon don’t get nearly the attention they deserve. But this little pocket-sized guide (4 x 0.5 x 6.8 inches) is the perfect way for hikers to discover these two great parks. It opens with a map and a list of the forty hikes covered with basic information: name, distance, elevation change, high point, and difficulty. An introduction includes an overview, geology, human history, flora and fauna, and must-see sites and activities. Information to help plan your trip includes camping and lodging, climate and weather, safety and outdoor etiquette, and suggested itineraries. Forty suggested hikes are written up with all the information one would need to have a successful and fun experience. Each hike has from two to six pages dedicated to it. Each contains the name, distance, elevation change, high point, difficulty, trail surface, maps information, GPS, and notes followed by a section called “Getting There”, what one will find on the trail, and “Going Farther.” Maps and beautiful, full-color photographs are included for most of the listings. This is a spectacular hiking guide—useful and beautiful.
