Great views, amazing trees, seen nothing like it before, so worth a little wander after a long winding drive.

Took a drive from Fresno to Sequoia National Park and Grant's Grove. Visited the General Grant Tree - easy to do, even in the cold from the nearby parking lot.

This tree is amazing. We hiked the trail the afternoon we arrived. The forest was quiet except for the sound of a few birds.

NIce short walking trail through big trees. I missed the sign saying you could not bring your dog on the trail. I ended up carrying my dog through the trail when I learned I could not bring her.

This is a short trail that is easily accessible from the main park highway - and it's worth the stop! There are other sequoias on this trail as well, though none as large, of course, as General Grant. We only spent an hour or so at this site before moving on to Sequoia National Park.

The tree, itself, is surrounded by fencing for its own protection. It is the largest giant Sequoia in the Kings Canyon section of the park. Along the switchback leading to the tree is a circular bricked patio that is the same diameter as the tree. This gives a striking idea of the tree's enormity.

This is a nice little loop. Easy hike for pretty much anyone. Grant is an amazing tree. There are also a couple of nice fallen logs to check out. There is also a bathroom in this area, which is always a bonus.

What an absolute majestic site! Amazing to see the size of all the Giant Sequoias. There is a great trail, and plenty of resting areas,for those that can't make it around, aka my 81 year old dad! Even with that, he got to see the tree, just not from all sides!

This tree we found to be more amazing than the General Sherman tree. It is more lovely, more magnificent! The size of these trees is indescribable. They are like running into a T-Rex. Awe inspiring but not scary!
