When my five year old grand daughter saw the General Grant tree she stopped in her tracks. It was so funny and made me get all teary eyed too. Its still a pretty huge tree to adults but to a kid it is colossal. We had a great day walking through so many other parts of the park. Great to... More

This is a very nice small grove. It was super informative and had gorgrous trees. Some of the highlights included General Grant Tree and the tree you could walk through. It's hard to take it all in when you're there because it just doesn't seem real. Highly recommend that everyone experiences this beautiful grove.

There is a general store , well stocked, tho' pricey. The resturant food is fabulas, but not cheap. The small museum has a gift shop and many interesting exhibits. There is a post office too. If you are camping at Sunset, Azalea or Crystal Springs, you can get a free map of the camp sites at the museum. Pay showers... More

It's a nature enthusiast’s dream and is about a mile from the visitors centre.The 1/2-mile easy loop trail from the parking area leads to the most significant and iconic tree in the Grove - General Grant (also the nations Christmas Tree). Of the two sequoia groves easily accessible (the other is Giants Forest) for us Grant Grove is the more... More

We walked the short General Grant Tree Trail. The Sequoias are just beautiful and it is hard to get your head around just how huge they are. Thank goodness for the National Parks.

Being around the giant sequoias was incredible! Visitors were very quiet around the trees, which was nice. It feels like being in a sacred place. The General Grant tree is the National Christmas Tree, so of course we wanted to see it. A nice walk around the grove, and an interesting museum to explore.

Yep it puts you in some (make that major) awe. These trees survive fire. Their neighbors die. They get the resulting resources and grow and grow and grow. Eventually they just fall under their own weight after 2000 or so years. Must see for kids. First there is the power of nature. It also supports the idea that we have... More

If we lived closer, this would be a favorite weekend getaway. Unfortunately we are a 4 hr plane ride away! Visited in early summer but hope to return for a fall or winter visit. Enjoyed the quiet atmosphere of the village, general store & post office, coffee kiosk between the gift shop and restaurant.
