Don't just go to look at this tree, but if you do it's worth it! Magnificent! Such awe when you stand and think about it's mass and all that it has been through in 2,000 years!The drive to the grove is through scruff lands, desert like, just amazing when you actually get to the grove of sequoias! We walked Congress Loop Trail which is near General Sherman's Tree. Nice short walk through gigantic trees! Helps you get a better perspective since you can actually stand beside them. A must see for nature lover's!
