We were there February 28th and there was a lot of snow with some roads not passable without chains but still worth seeing these magnificient trees, especially the General Grant Tree.

Favorite area to camp in! I love Azalea campground and the visitor center. Remember, leave no trace! Do NOT write or carve on rocks, do not litter and do not feed wildlife! Pick up pet feces & throw way in trash, bury human feces & completely put out campfires. Preserve nature!

I took my mom and sisters on a little excursion they had never been to the park. They were in all of the total experience.

Parking in summer is a hike away, in winter, there is parking just downhill from the tree along the General's Highway. General Sherman is not the oldest tree in the park, but it is the largest living organism on the earth.. awesome.

If you have reached Grant Grove, you must drive down and see the General Grant tree. It is the 3rd largest by volume. but also, the area surrounding it is beautiful! The walk from the car is only about 5-6 minutes, so it is easy for everyone. Beside General Grant, you can walk through a fallen tree. Take 30-60 minutes... More

The General Grant tree - the third largest tree in the world by volume - has been dubbed the nation's Christmas tree and is surrounded by several equally impressive neighboring giants.

Kind of a mixed stop. Definitely go, but when we went, the visitor's center was closed, the shop was small and kind of empty. At least go see General Grant tree.

There is nothing like the majesty of the Sequoias! We spent a good hour meandering the trail to and from General Grant. My wife wanted to HUG a sequoia, so she did and she was amazed. "It's so soft" she said. The grandeur is beyond belief.

When visiting Sequoia National Park, to ensure that you are seeing the greatest concentration of giant sequoia trees...be sure to take the General Grant Grove Trail. Not only is the General Grant tree a huge behemoth to behold...it's actually the largest giant sequoia tree in the world...but there are many, many more sequoia trees located all along the trail. And... More

Access to this tree is for the disabled (lower parking lot) and all others in the upper parking lot. The lower parking provides an easy route to see the Grant Tree and all others. It is worth it so see the only living Natural Shrine in all its majesty.
