“Grant's Tree”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2015 NEW

So big! We took several pictures and even walked around to visit all the trees around Grant's tree. We actually walked inside one tree that had fallen.

“Into the woods”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2015 NEW

First stop on our two-day exploration of Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks. I knew these were big, ancient trees, but seeing and touching them was still awe inspiring. Park Service employees seem to love the trees and the place and they're happy to answer every question. Perhaps oddly, one of our favorite experiences was walking through the trunk of a long fallen sequoia. It had been used as winter housing over a century ago by early park explorers. It now has large crevices that let in sunlight, but walking/climbing through it is like walking through a narrow cave. The Sentinal Tree is enormous, although it's considered a mid-sized sequoia. The General Grant is so big, it seems almost unreal. The paths around the General Grant tree are clean and easy to navigate, even with a baby stroller. It's a good place to start an exploration of either park.

“Nice trees.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2015 NEW

Many large Sequoia's near lot, but Grant tree is a way in the back. I would guess many people see the fenced off tree in front and drive off because there is no real signs that we saw that directed you to the Grant tree, you assume the first one is the one.

“Must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2015

My favorite spot in the park. It might seem out of the way, but if you don't see it you will regret it. It is spectacular.

“Best spot to look and run”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2015

If you only have time to take a drive by look, ok a stop and park and take a short hike and see the Giant Sequoias. This is the spot. You get to see a General, [Grant not Sherman] walk thru a tunnel tree and do it all in less than 53 minutes.

Be advised that Jellystone Park service can not keep all the roads open when it snows, so check for closing if it is the winter months. Nice how this park [Kings Canyon] charges a fee and the other park up north [Sequioa National Park] also charges a fee during the same time period.
