Kings Canyon Scenic Byway
|Photos by Ben Prepelka
Although Kings Canyon National Park is a fairly large piece of real estate, only a small fraction is accessible by auto. Surrounded by the Monarch Wilderness and Jennie Lakes Wilderness, the Kings Canyon Scenic Byway enters the park from the west and dead ends under the gaze of the Grand Sentinel, an 8500 foot peak that sets the tone for a formidable Sierra-Nevada Range. This huge roadblock tells backcountry hikers that they have the rest of the park for themselves.
