About Kings Canyon National Park

Kings Canyon National Park is located in the southern range of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The region just east of Fresno, California, has a long history of human habitation and colonial exploitation. The park was initially protected as General Grant National Park in 1890, a result of work by preservationist John Muir. The lower reaches of the park were nearly dammed in the following decades. Early conservationists Harold Icke and Ansel Adams worked to establish Kings Canyon National Park in 1940, which incorporated and expanded General Grant National Park.

The park was formed by moving glaciers, and its elevation reaches from 1,370 to 14,494 feet. The largest old-growth forest of sequoia in the world is found here alongside Kings Canyon, which is at 8,200 feet deeper than any other canyon in the United States. Several other geographical oddities make the park very similar to Yosemite and establish its origin as glacial movement. These features include a granite floor, 200 marble caves, U-shaped gorges, and steep granite cliffs. The park is bounded by Mount Goethe to the north and the Sierran Crest to the east.

Early explorers accessed the park via several passes through the Sierra mountain range, and these are still accessible only by foot and horse from June through October. The entire park is open to the public, but most of it is inaccessible by auto excepting the stands of old-growth sequoia groves and mixed conifer forests. Black bears, bobcats, and a variety of other fauna reside primarily in the deeper and more protected regions. Much of the alpine, sub-alpine, and cave fauna is only visible to explorers via hiking trails and/or guided tours through endangered areas.
