The Grove is a once-in-a-lifetime experience: The giant Sequoias with fun places like the fallen burned-out tree that to can go through. It has universal appeal: When we were there a group of Buddhist monks were also exploring the Grove. A great place for everyone.

The history of the area is richer than I originally thought. The smells and the view are wonderful, and the rangers are easy to find, friendly, and happy to take pictures of visitors.

I missed the sign saying you could not bring your dog on the trail. I ended up carrying her through it. Relatively easy trail to walk through in about 30 minutes

We all loved the small walk around the grove to General Grant tree. Such a beautiful place and so clean. Nice to see things litter-free.

From the parking lot follow the 0.3 mile loop to view the General Grant Tree. It measures 268 feet tall and 107 feet around. It is about 2000 years old and still growing. There is a special Yuletide celebration under it's branches each year. Check the park calendar for details.

This is one of the most important features of the park. Stop by and enjoy it, you may encounter a few German tourists and that will confirm you are in the right location!

This is what you came for - easy access to the big boys. Breathtaking, awesome, easy to get to. Surrounded by hiking trails from easy to moderate, and stables nearby as well.

The place to see a great many giant Sequoias. Trails range from short and easy strolls to longer and more challenging hikes.

I liked the variety at this place with almost every service, plus that nice historical feel to it. We stayed at the Wuksuchi but I would stay here next time.

This area is a nice area in Kings Canyon. There is a lodge, restaurant, gift shop, market, visitors center. There seemed to be ample parking, but we did go there during off season.
