“a tree to remember”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

Grant's grove is the home to one of the largest Sequoia trees in the world. It is a great place to visit and walk around in the forest and enjoy the beauty of the Sequoia National Park and all it has to offer.

“Fabulous trees!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Awe-inspiring views of sequoia trees. Lovely trails and hikes. Lots of history. John Muir Lodge and restaurant were quiet, clean, and the food was good. Did not like the tiny, winding road going south through the park. Drive slowly!

“Grant grove actually in Fresno County, not here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

The major attraction on this route, through Three Rivers, is Giant Forest. This includes Moro Rock, a must climb of 340 steps, and the General Sherman tree, the largest living thing in the world. The General Grant tree, at Grant Grove is some miles north, taking the General's Highway (get it?). Not sure who screwed up, but you will not be disappointed at either place. Please climb Moro Rock. Then stop in Lodgepole, or at Wasachi for lunch.

“Phenomenal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

Absolutely amaZing. I am warning those weary of heights... this is not the place for you. The trip up to these giants was scary as hell... hair-pin turns every 25 feet, massive cliffs and all around scary!

If you are brave though, it is one of the most amazing things I have ever seen! Well worth the $20. The hike down is easy but if you're with elderly ask one of the park entrance personnel for a handicap sign... I saw many older people struggling to do tgd steep incline back up. Tge handicap parking literally will put them at the base of generak Grant. A++++++ sight

“Out of the world”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

This place is truly spectacular. We visited on mid March, though the weather was pretty nice, as March is still considered to be off-season, there was very few people and we enjoyed the easy trail on our own. The main attraction is General Grant tree, which is the second largest living being on earth, it's just huge. There are many other giant sequoia which you can see in this trail. Absolutely must for everyone, an experience of lifetime.
