  1. Default 2-3 day from LA - Sequioa NP - Yosemite Advice?

    I live in Los Angeles and have never been to Sequioa NP or Yosemite.

    I have June 26-July 9 off work and want to make a 2-3 day trip.

    Can anyone suggest an itinerary?

    Is Sequioa a place to stay or should I just pass through there and go to Yosemite.

    Is 2 days enough time in Yosemite?

    Anyone suggest places to stay? Or alternate scenic routes?

    Thanks for your time & help!

    Default Nice Weekend

    Welcome to the RTA forum!

    I think you should be able to hit both parks over a long weekend, but remember you're going to basically have a half day drive to get to and from the parks, so that will cut into your time to enjoy the parks.

    I think I would drive up to Sequoia and explore most of that part for the rest of the day and stay in the park or nearby that night. I'd go back into Kings Canyon for the morning of the 2nd day and then drive to Yosemite, getting there by the evening. Then I'd spend as much time as I could in the Yosemite Valley before booking it for home at the end day three.

  3. Default going T, W, Th

    So I am going to Sequioa/Yosemite on T, W, leaving late Th.

    Is that enough time? Should I leave early Fri?

    Can anyone suggest places to stay and things to do?

    Default I Don't Know

    At just over 400 miles, it's going to be an all day drive one-way between Los Angeles and Yosemite, particularly since you will have to get into/out of the LA Basin and will be hitting Yosemite during peak season. I don't see where a 2-3 day trip allows for 2 days in Yosemite even without the side trip to Sequoia. I think you're right to do this mid-week, but I'd add a day if at all possible. Other stops along the way might include Mono Hot Springs and Squaw Valley.
