“Easy to visit these Giants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014

Grant Grove, located pretty close to the access gate into Kings Canyon, is a wonderland of giant trees. When you pull into the parking lot, you are immediately in the forest. There is a terrific and easy to walk trail that takes you through the tree forest. Note: parking is sometimes a pain, so try to arrive early to avoid having to wait. Tip: have a picnic in the Columbine Picnic area that is on the road down (or back) from the Grant Grove (and enjoy the best bathrooms in the whole park!!).

“Beautiful Trees”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

A beautiful grove of sequoia trees. For folks who don't walk well, it is important to know that the path is paved, however there are gradual inclines throughout the grove. There is a large parking lot with facilities as well.

“Nice walk to the Big Tree”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

Nice area. Lots of old, big trees. Something you can't really see anywhere else in the world. Lots of trails in the area to wander around.

“How can you not love this?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

Absolutely incredible experience seeing all of these trees. Though I Iove the deciduous forests of the eastern states where I live, our larger trees would rate as a branch when compared to the behemoths of the Sierra Nevada range.

“Good place to stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

We had been up at Cedar Grove Village so this was the next stop on our drive south. You can get a full meal at Grant Grove Restaurant or buy a coffee/muffin from the vendor set up just outside. Yummy blueberry muffins by the way : )
