By car, Sequoia National Park can only be accessed from the west.
Sequoia National Park and Kings Canyon National Park are adjacent and administered as one unit. The entrance fee covers both parks.
Cave tours can be taken at Crystal Cave, which lies at the end of a spur road from near Giant Forest Village. This area is only open during the summer. The National Park Service Golden Eagle Passport does not cover the cost of cave tours. I believe that you may have to obtain tickets for tours of Crystal Cave at the store or the lodge in Giant Forest Village - in any case it would be well worth inquiring about cave tours there before taking the spur road.

Orange County we call them grasshoppers. The part is also accessible from the south through Three Rivers,
