“The Sequoias are amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

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.

“Nice museum.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

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.

“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.
