It is one of the first things to see as you enter the park and was very crowded but the trees were incredible and definitely worth a stop

This is a must see if you're in the area. Not only will you see these massive, breathing trees, you'll also get a free, self guided history lesson. There are marked paths through the area. At the entrance you can purchase a map/pamphlet for a $1.50 donation. There are plaques at each site to read, telling of the site. The... More

This trail isn't hard at all and most anyone can walk it easily. We especially enjoyed the fallen tree and how you could walk through it and they also had a great story board by the tree so you could see how it looked years ago.

Beautiful, of course! Very easy and short walk with amazing tress around... There is also a fallen giant trunk which is now hollow so you can even walk through and make some nice photos.

They say the Sherman sequoia is the biggest, but the Grant tree is almost as big and a lot easier to visit. Additional attraction at the Grant site is the "fallen giant", a great sequoia which has fallen and is hollow so you can walk through it! Cool!

Short, but nice walk around the General Grant tree. Alongside the trail there are signs with some extra information about the surroundings.

Beautiful walk through the Sequoias. This was our first stop in the park and it was great. Easy walk around the forest on a marked path. Huge trees! There are a couple which have fallen that you can climb right through the inside of them...cool!

This is one of our favorite places in the Parks. This is a nice easy trail with much to see. You can really take your time and enjoy. It is very close to the visitors center. We try to visit during week and have no problems with crowds or parking.
