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!!).
