Kings Canyon National Park

In the sunshine of summertime, Kings Canyon National Park offers a choice of guided horseback rides through the groves or along the water. One of the most beautiful trails begins at the Cedar Grove Pack Station and brings riders through the ever-popular Rae Lakes loop to observe the magnificent waterfront pictured here.
