I´m just planning the end of road trip with my parents for the beginning of July. We´re going to travel from Grand Canyon in one day to Three Rivers I suppose. We can spent one or two days in Sequoia. I´d like to show them General Sherman of course but also other beautiful places for normal level hikers. We have a car and I´d like to know if it´s good idea to stay night somewhere in Three Rivers, explore Sequoia NP, stay there another night, go to Kings Canyon and back home to Bay area? Can anybody (the area experts the best) give me tips where to go.. ? if just drive, make few stops close to the top places.. Or can I drive the whole way from Hw 198 to Zumwalt Meadow and back out by Hw 180? I´m kind of confused, the are is so big and seems to be a lot of places to visit, but which ones really worth it and how long it takes?
Thank you very much in advance!
