Like the General Sherman, the General Grant tree is another must-see while in the park. The trail was nice and paved - easy walking. There were some interesting downed trees that were cool to see while walking the trail - there's a tree you can walk through; that was pretty neat. There's also a cabin nearby that was used by...

An easy stroll along a paved path brings you to this breathtaking behemoth! At over 1600 years old, the General Grant is the third largest tree in the world. Take your time and enjoy the majestic beauty of this tree and the surrounding grove. Visiting places like this always leave me full of hope and a renewed sense of respect... More

We spent about an hour walking the trail to see this magnificent giant of nature. Words cannot describe the wonder of this tree. We were also able to walk through, yes through, the hollowed out trunk of a fallen sequoia along the trail. Now that's an experience to remember!

This is a short trail full of huge, amazing sequoia trees. It is easy to get to, easy to walk through, and a pleasant experience. If you are older or handicapped, you should know that the trail is paved and is relatively flat. Even though the General Grant Tree is the highlight, there are a great number of trees there... More

Visited Kings Canyon-Sequoia National Parks and what a spectacular adventure. We went to Giant Forest and walked among the giant sequoia trees. Walking the General Grant Trail was amazing and when we came upon the General Grant Tree, one can't imagine the size of theses trees unless standing among them. This is the second largest sequoia in the world, so... More

Unlike the Wawonna Grove in Yosemite this grove is easy to walk around, including an amazing dead tree that you can walk through. Try to join the ranger talk to get the whole story on this amazing grove.

It is an easy walk with a lot to see. It is beautiful and gives a real feel for the entire park with interesting history. Great walk for all ages and abilities.

This was a well done series of small trails. The views of seqouias were enticing and the crowds were tolerable. I like the "foot print of a Seqouia" paving stones. It was a good touch.
