“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

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 to be good stewards of nature.

“Loved Grant Grove”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

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.

Whatever you do walk the.8 mile General Grant trail but then head off to the 1.5 mile North Grove trail it is less crowded and lots of Sequoias

“Most beautiful trees”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

I thought the trees at this grove was the most beautiful in the two national parks. The trees were spectacular, large, and very healthy. You can see the branches and the trunks so clearly here. I'm not sure if it was the time of the day (7pm-ish in the evening), the few people that were here at this time, or what, but I thought the trees here were the most majestic.
