Loved the convenience to the Grant Trail as well as other trails. The grocery was handy and the restraunt was Fabulous! The info center was pricey, had to pay for park map and ranger we spoke with not real helpful. Read up before you go to know what to ask.

The trees take your breath away and you think you have seen all there is to see but walk around the paths. It is an easy walk even for seniors and so much of interest to see. So worth the effort!

I've been to Grant Grove twice. The trees and trails are fantastic and I highly recommend them to anybody visiting the park. The visitors center is informative, and the gift stores have a good selection.

The Grant Grove of trees is impressive beyond belief. These giants rise so high in the air you need to lie on your back to appreciate them fully! It's a must do for anyone visiting the parks.

We stopped here to grab a bite to eat, good food, friendly staff, and a good setting to just sit and relax a few minutes, right across from the visitors center.

It's just amazing to walk amongst these towering behemoths! Aside from the General Grant Tree, there are a bunch of other giant trees in this grove. There was also an historic cabin. Easy parking. Restrooms available.
