It was so nice to walk among these great trees. It was a short hike to the trail and the trees. It is unbelievable how big (around) these trees are. You should definitely go! There is a trail that goes from a higher elevation to lower elevation, which is great when you're going down, but is a little tougher going... More

Get here early or you may not find a parking spot, even though the parking lot is pretty big. We drove in about 8:30AM and there were about 7 vehicles in the lot. By the time we left an hour later, there were about 200 vehicles. This is also a very popular tree because it is the official Christmas tree... More

The tree is massive. Bring your panoramic camera to get the entire tree in your photo. They have a nice pathway leading to the tree with beautiful views. The elevation is high so take breaks if needed! This trail has a fun spot where you can walk inside a fallen tree. It is really cool!

This area is so beautiful, but I would suggest getting there early before the crowds. We got there and only one other car was there and it was SO cool walking around this huge forest by ourselves. We also saw a deer right off the path and it just kept eating like we weren't there.

This was a highlight of our time in Sequoia/Kings Canyon. Take the time to walk around. The trail is paved and an easy walk. There is a visitor center and food nearby.

Easier to get to the tree than the General Sherman in Sequoia. Several large trees you can touch, downed trees you can walk into

Take an awe-inspiring walk through trees that defy any ordinary sense of scale. Feels like you are experiencing a prehistoric time. Makes you want to preserve the natural wonders of the world.

Great walk to the tree! Bears pass through from time to time. Love the smell of the tress and peaceful setting. Great place of the family

The General Grant Tree is quite big. Unfortunately, there’s a fence preventing folks from getting within 50 feet. Yes, it’s impressive, but I preferred the trees in the area leading up to it. They could be touched, explored, and even tunneled. Well worth seeing if you’re in the park!
