“land of giants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

I believe this is the easiest place to see the most giant sequoia trees in one area. The paved trail, about a mile long loop, is easy to walk, and it puts you right next to some of the largest trees on earth. Grant Grove is also the closest part of of the park from Fresno, so it only takes about an hour to drive here from the city. It is usually accessible in winter, but you should still check beforehand.

“The closest village to the entrance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

Grant Grove seemed smaller than some of the other villages but everything seemed well placed and easy to get to with a short walking distance. The gift shop/restaurant area was clean and well maintained. There is a lodge here as well as tent and RV camping and tent cabins and regular cabins for rent. Grant Grove is very close to the General Grant Tree . It seemed to be about halfway between both parks, which is what attracted us to it . I can't think of anything we disliked about staying here.

“I never thought of myself as a tree hugger”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

But I just couldn't help myself when you see the size and magnificence of these trees. Spend a little time walking on the trails in Sequoia so you are walking amongst them rather than just visit the biggest ones. It makes you realise how majestic they are and also how small you are when you can walk through them, drive through them and stand inside the fire damage on the sides of them

“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!
