Beauty and silence

The John Muir Lodge is located here. It was quiet and an enjoyable walking area. Many tall trees to see and be amazed by.

Besides being able to see the tree from three sides, including the fire charred side you get to walk through a hollowed out Sequoia log, which really gives you an appreciation for how large these giant trees are.

Great trail past loads of awesome trees. Really interesting to see how they can survive fires and having massive holes bored through them. Very busy, but you don't really notice it as you're mostly looking up. Small store near the turn-off is handy.

Very nice, walkable attraction. Read all of the information about the history and especially the ages of the trees.

What an awesome place to be. Roaming through the pathways amongst these giants puts life into perspective. Come here to wonder & breathe.

Those of you looking for a relatively easy hike with paved routes, while maintaining the beauty and majesty of the giant sequoias, the Grant Grove delivers. It can be crowded during peak hours, but definitely not as crowded as the General Sherman tree. There are some other trails that either start or pass through the Grant Grove, so if you... More

We visited here on our way in and out of Kings Canyon with our 2 boys. The restaurant is nice, although expensive and the menu is limited. The gift shop was nice.

See it at least a couple times, but there will always be people and some times busses. Still awesome to experience.

Order a trail map here (http://www.sequoiahistory.org) and find what trail length and difficulty level calls to you. I combined the General Grant Tree Trail with the North Grove Loop and the Dead Giant Loop Trail. Don't just see one tree. There are so many amazing things here.

If you have never seen these majestic trees, then you are missing out. My family and I love them so much that we moved to the park border town of Three Rivers. Sequoia-Kings Canyon National Parks offer all kinds of memorable activities without the crowds of Yosemite.
