Grant Grove is just 1 few minutes drive from John Muir lodge where we stayed. We had serene moments there at 6.30 without any crowd

Get here early so that you can walk around with the giant trees with limited people. In this grove you can climb on a few and walk through fallen tree.

It's a fun and easy walk. So many big trees. There is one tree tunnel and this is a busy area on the weekend. So many tourists and everyone want a picture. Must see when you're in Kings Canyon.

The Grant Grove features the General Grant Sequoia Tree, the second or so biggest tree on the planet. This grove lies at the northern side of Sequoia National Park, and features a large parking area and restroom facilities. The trail is an easy stroll to the General Grant, which is fenced off (with wooden fence posts) to protect its root... More

I'm glad we stopped here to see the sequoias. We also listened to a ranger tell us about the history of the land. It was really interesting. It was a little crowded for me. There were also a lot of children who were running off the path. Personally I preferred Giant Forest.

Traveling up the highway leading to Sequoia and King Canyon National Park is an adventure in itself. While the road is narrow and winding, not to mention slow going, you are easily mesmerized by the totality of the beauty that surrounds you. When you get to Grants Grove you only think you have arrived!! There is much more on your... More

This is definitely the reason you visit this park. Don't pass it up as there not as many easy and historical short hikes like this in the park. Lots of parking but it fills up early then a short walk to the tree. You can circle around it for pictures. It's not like the Gen Sherman tree where you only... More

This area is too crowded. The path is OK with trees that are nice, not awe-inspiring, but nice. Better areas in park.

My kids really found this Grove enjoyable. You get to pass through the hollowed out tree and see some large Sequioa trees as well.

We liked Grant's Grove almost as much as Sherman's Tree. The path is easy and meanders around the grove.
