CA road trip to Yosemite

Jump to last reply

We plan to see as many "big trees" as possible on this trip. Flying in to San Francisco, then driving to Yosemite. Currently have a reservation at the Yosemite West Gate Lodge. I have spent HOURS trying to figure out how many hikes, and best locations to stay so as to fit in the most viewing pleasure :)

Right now I have 2 days in San Francisco, 4 days in Yosemite, 2 days in Sequoia/Kings Canyon (not sure where to stay for that part).

There are 4 of us, 2 middle-aged fairly fit (able to hike moderate trails) parents, 2 20-something year olds, very fit.

I am thinking about a 10 day trip (one day for flying on either side).
Any suggestions or experiences?
