Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks: Generals Highway
Redwood Hikes Press
This topographic trail map covers the most popular day hiking areas of Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. It is organized around the Generals Highway, the main connector between the two sister parks. A key feature of the map is that it shows and names all the Sequoia groves of the area, both the popular groves with road and trail access and the remote groves with no trail access. Also shows all campgrounds, both vehicular and walk-in/backcountry. This detailed map was created after many field visits using a GPS unit.
