Wilderness Press :: Hiking :: Kings Canyon National Park
Kings Canyon National Park
Kings Canyon National Park 
One of America's deepest gorges, Kings Canyon plunges more than 8000 feet and extends nearly eleven miles in length. Pristine alpine lakes reflect the surrounding silver-grey peaks, lupine and corn lilies flourish in meadows, and giant sequoias tower in world's largest stands of these ancient trees. This is the dramatic landscape of Kings Canyon National Park, southern neighbor to the more famous Yosemite.

Cool your feet in the turbulent clear waters of the South Fork Kings River, enjoy a picnic beside raucous Mist Falls, ramble on creekside trails through forests fragrant with cedar and pine, or regain your perspective from the park's highest points. Where the highway ends, the adventures beginů

Kings Canyon National Park: A Complete Hiker's Guide is the first comprehensive guide to the trails, campgrounds, outfitters, and facilities in the park and its environs. You'll find trips in neighboring Giant Sequoia National Monument, Sierra National Forest, and the Jennie Lakes and Monarch wilderness areas. Use this book to simplify your trip-planning--choose from 62 dayhikes, weekend overnights, or longer backpacks.

About Mike White
Mike was born and raised in Portland, Oregon. He learned to hike in the Cascades and honed his outdoor skills while attending Seattle Pacific University. After college, Mike relocated to the high desert of Nevada, where he was drawn to the beautiful and sunny Sierra.

He expanded Wilderness Press' Trinity Alps (now in its 5th edition) and then wrote his first guide, Nevada Wilderness Areas and Great Basin National Park. Subsequent books included the Wilderness Press Snowshoe Trails series, Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks, Afoot & Afield Reno & Tahoe, and Top Trails Lake Tahoe.
