Great range of hiking from easy to tough. Well managed to minimize risk. Lots of protection if something bad happens. Felt safe and cared for. Did two hikes, easy one and rim walk. Would have liked to stay longer but no time left. Great location....More

We were on the stairs by about 6.15am and they were brutal. Younger, fitter people were finding it much easier than I did, but there are plenty of places to stop on the way up to check out the view before reaching the top, about...More

The Kings Canyon Rim Walk is a worthwhile exercise, many people can complete when you make an early start, especially in the warmer season. The first climb is a bit challenging but no big deal for fit people. If you have vertigo just dont look...More

The best part of Kings Canyon is doing the rim walk, taking about 3 hours or so, fantastic scenery, best done in the early morning. Not really sure if it’s something the younger children would appreciate after a long drive.
