We went back and forth on this road 4 times and could not find where to go for this place - no signs at all. We were told it was difficult to find, but they need to do something about that.

This grove of trees has a nice paved walkway and is very accessible. Lots of photo opportunities and some neat historical features about the trees. There is a pamphlet that is available and quite helpful as you walk through this grove. Also, restrooms are located near the parking area. There is a trail that leads to the store and visitor...

The Grove is located a bit away from the other major attractions and we almost missed it! So glad we visited! It is beautiful and amazing to see Sequoias clustered together. In the Grove are trails, a historic cabin, clustered Sequoias (of course), the General Grant tree, another fallen tree that's been carved out so you can walk inside it,... More

Grant Grove is the most accessible of all the Sequoia groves. Close parking and a easy 1/3 mile walk with get your right up to the General Grant tree and you can see where early settlers camped for years in a fallen tree that has taken hundreds of years to decay. The trees are magnificient and they tell the early... More

This grove of the giant Sequoias is just off the Highway 180 on the way to the entrance of Kings Canyon National Park and is part of that park. The grove has a large parking lot and the trail through the grove is short and easily walked. The jewel of this grove is the General Grant Tree, which is the... More

Grant Grove, located pretty close to the access gate into Kings Canyon, is a wonderland of giant trees. When you pull into the parking lot, you are immediately in the forest. There is a terrific and easy to walk trail that takes you through the tree forest. Note: parking is sometimes a pain, so try to arrive early to avoid... More

A beautiful grove of sequoia trees. For folks who don't walk well, it is important to know that the path is paved, however there are gradual inclines throughout the grove. There is a large parking lot with facilities as well.

Nice area. Lots of old, big trees. Something you can't really see anywhere else in the world. Lots of trails in the area to wander around.
