Kings Canyon National Park was established in 1940, the 24th of America's National Parks to be designated. The park is located in California, just north of Sequoia National Park. In addition to its namesake, Kings Canyon, the park is known for its General Grant Grove, home to some of the world's most massive giant sequoia trees. The General Grant tree within the grove is the world's third-largest tree, and is believed to be around 1,650 years old. It is 267.4 feet tall, and its base has a circumference of 107.6 feet.
