“General Grant Tree Trail, Kings Canyon National Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

This well-maintained trail wanders through a grove of HUGE Sequoia trees. General Grant is the 2nd largest in the area, General Sherman being the largest by volume. Both are about 36 ft. in diameter and 200+ ft tall. Lovely area.

“Pretty impressive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

But we found we enjoyed Big Tree Trail even more than this one. Be prepared for a lot of tourists and big groups.

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

The place is awe-inspiring. Bring a camera. It's a good workout, too. The trail is safe enough for kids.

“Lots and Lots of BIG Trees....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

If you like big trees then this is the place for you. All wrapped up in one trail. Really these trees can be seen all over the park; but its nice to see a lot of them in one location.

“Great Tree in a Nice Grove of Sequoias”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

At some point it becomes impossible for the human eye to distinguish which of these trees is larger. The Grant tree is in a larger, more interesting grove than the larger Sherman tree. It's right inside the north park entrance and well worth your time and effort to visit. Very nice visitors' center as well.
