The Visitor center is at the entrance, also a market , post office , gift shop and a restaurant. Restaurant needs a change , service... More

Very worthwhile visit. Large concentration of Sequoia trees in this area. Several interesting trees. A large stump, the tree cut down for a World's Fair. Also a down hollow tree used in the past for shelter. The grove is just a short distance from the King's Canyon Visitor Center.

We did lots of driving down the winding roads and enjoyed the scenery. We arrived after the snow melt, I imagine driving around this area is tricky in bad weather and very slow.

My sons and I have been here twice now to camp, hike, bond and basically unplug from city life. We spend hours walking amongst the big trees and hiking the many trails that surround Grants Grove. The Columbine Picnic Area nearby is also a lovely place to escape and enjoy a bite to eat. The Azalea Camp site is open... More

An easy drive from Paso Robles! Hwy 41 to 46 to 180 and in about 3 1/2 hours or less you are there! Just took my 9 year old son there to see the infamous General Grant Tree! He was in awe of it all! We got there just before 10AM and we were like the 4th car in parking... More

The tree itself, I think, is a bit less interesting than the Sherman tree. I think, that the latter is better located for looking than the Grant tree. For me, the most interesting attraction on this trail was the wooden hut of the soldiers and park rangers used long time ago. It is made of thick wooden plates with minimum... More

So big! We took several pictures and even walked around to visit all the trees around Grant's tree. We actually walked inside one tree that had fallen.

First stop on our two-day exploration of Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks. I knew these were big, ancient trees, but seeing and touching them was still awe inspiring. Park Service employees seem to love the trees and the place and they're happy to answer every question. Perhaps oddly, one of our favorite experiences was walking through the trunk of... More

Many large Sequoia's near lot, but Grant tree is a way in the back. I would guess many people see the fenced off tree in front and drive off because there is no real signs that we saw that directed you to the Grant tree, you assume the first one is the one.
