Kings Canyon Walks

The two most popular walks in the park are the short, easy stroll along the canyon floor and the much longer, in parts strenuous but very, very rewarding walk up to and along the canyon rim.

Kings Creek Walk 

The walk follows the canyon floor for a bit and has some signs and displays explaining the vegetation on the canyon floor. It leads to a lookout point from where you have nice views of the towering walls.

Kings Canyon Rim Walk 

This is the real thing, the walk that everyone raves about. It requires an average level of fitness. It does take a few hours, and there is that initial steep climb to get up to the rim. The path is a lot less steep where it comes down again on the other side. It’s not difficult at all, there are steps where necessary
