3-day wilderness trip in Kings Canyon?

Hey all,

I'm planning a three-day wilderness trip with 4 or 5 friends to Kings Canyon or Sequoia NP in July. I've never been before, and I'm having a hard time picking an appropriate route. Any of you fine folks have any advice? A loop would be nice, we'd look to average about 10 miles a day, beautiful scenery, blah blah.

Thanks!

Actually...

... we'll have two cars, so we could do a one-way route and park a car at the other end.

Thoughts?

Thanks.

trails

Yeah, I saw that, but the descriptions are pretty thin, a lot of them aren't on the map, and none of them say how long they are. Bummer.
