If you are visiting the area, I would recommend this for a nice stroll through some sequoias. The tree of course is huge, but there is also a fallen down tree to walk through and others to see.

The walk is easy from the parking area and well worth it. So much history and so much to see. Make sure to take a camera, you will want it.

I liked the General Sherman visit too, but there was more to see at General Grant with the walk-through sequoia and lots of other sequoias to look at. Less crowded too.

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
