The 30 mile-drive along Hwy. 180, from the General Grant in Kings Canyon National Park to Cedar Grove Village, is known as the Kings Canyon Scenic Byway. This is a beautiful drive which zigzags down from the 7,000 foot level to the 4,000 foot level into the canyon passing many wonderful sights on the way. Be sure to stop at Junction View, where the sheer canyon walls have a tendency to close in around you and even hang out over you, as the wild South Fork of the Kings River surges over rapids far below. Deep in the heart of Kings Canyon, Cedar Grove is a lush place of tumbling waterfalls, meadows, and miles of quiet hiking trails. There are two spectacular granite formations: Grand Sentinel, which rises 3,500 feet above the canyon floor, and North Dome, which many liken to Half Dome in Yosemite. Other highlights are the noisy and powerful Roaring River Falls, an easily reached falls just a hundred yards off the road, and the beautifully scenic Zumwalt Meadow. Camping is available all summer. The road is closed from fall until spring.
