Wonderful short hike

This is the short hike around the General Grant tree. It takes about an hour, and is a wonderful activity for children or anyone who appreciates these remarkable giant trees.

The General Grant tree is worthy of a trip all by itself but to then combine it with a tour thru King's Canyon and Sequoia National Park it truly breathtaking.

We had a very quick stop here on our way out of the park on a long journey. Wish we could of spent more time but the trees we did see were incredible. There are guided walks which I would recommend , but we didn't have enough time.

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.

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
