    From the parking area, begin hiking north up the Southern California Edison flume. Begin across the road from the Kings Canyon Visitor Center. General Grant Grove is located just beyond the entrance to Kings Canyon. Middle elevations—5, to 9, feet—are often snow-covered from November through May.

    Head south at each junction along the way until you see a big sign with blue lettering that marks the start of Huckleberry Trail. River Trail -- This trail heads upstream as it hugs the river and can be shortened if you just want to walk to the waterfalls 0. The site is sponsored by Nature Valley, maker of the best-selling granola bars, and a longtime supporter of national parks. The hiking season for much of Sequoia and Kings Canyon national parks is a fairly short one. All that's left today are the old stumps and piles of year-old sawdust. The road winds along the mountains, descending down into Kings Canyon.

    This is well worth the effort. General Grant Grove is located just beyond the entrance to Kings Canyon. To the left is Watchtower Trail, which moves along a granite ledge blasted in the rock with dynamite. A bit farther on, you'll come upon Panther Creek and a small waterfall.
