From the parking lot follow the 0.3 mile loop to view the General Grant Tree. It measures 268 feet tall and 107 feet around. It is about 2000 years old and still growing. There is a special Yuletide celebration under it's branches each year. Check the park calendar for details.

This is one of the most important features of the park. Stop by and enjoy it, you may encounter a few German tourists and that will confirm you are in the right location!

This is what you came for - easy access to the big boys. Breathtaking, awesome, easy to get to. Surrounded by hiking trails from easy to moderate, and stables nearby as well.

The place to see a great many giant Sequoias. Trails range from short and easy strolls to longer and more challenging hikes.

I liked the variety at this place with almost every service, plus that nice historical feel to it. We stayed at the Wuksuchi but I would stay here next time.

This area is a nice area in Kings Canyon. There is a lodge, restaurant, gift shop, market, visitors center. There seemed to be ample parking, but we did go there during off season.

One stump is called the Chicago Stump, as it was cut down, split into smaller pieces, and sent to the Chicago Worlds Fair as an exhibit. Only a... More

Much easier access and less strenuous trail to see the General Grant Tree, which is in the came category as the General Sherman Tree.

You'll marvel just as much here as you would in Sequoia at Sherman. And there are seemingly less crowds too, though neither area was "too" crowded due to late September visit! See the Fallen Monarch which you can walk through, a stand of trees adjacent to the parking lot for those who are less mobile and looking for an accessible... More

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.
