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...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...More

We got up at dawn and had the Grant Grove all to ourselves, not another person to be seen. Beautiful walks through well maintained paths through tree groves and around a meadow. We came across a young black bear foraging for grubs and delicately eating...More

Sure, General Sherman is bigger, but Grant does more and does it far better. It's a shorter, flatter hike. There's a cool cabin and a fallen monarch you can WALK THROUGH nearby, and there's stuff for the kids to enjoy/fall down on. What more do...More

Loved Grant Grove. Different enough from others, yet still full of the wondrous magic that these trees can instil in us. Very easy and accessible trail to all. And General Grant is a beauty - you can get closer than you can to General Sherman...More

Easily accessible from parking area which has restrooms the tree is impressive and easy trail shows off other Sequoias and a pioneer cabin. Just remember Grant has a tree (still growing) but Lee has a Stone Mountain in GA!

If driving into King's Canyon stopping by the Grant Grove is a must. There are numerous Sequoia trees to see and the Grant tree is the highlight. While at the Grant Grove an hour hike along the North Grove will give you some time away...More

We enjoyed the short loop hike around the giant sequoias. It was well worth the visit. I especially liked the hollow tree that people can walk through!

I don't know if it is even open at that time of year. Check with local sources. Even if it is open, definitely keep an eye on the weather.

Yes, you could see the area minimally. You could see the view around you and though it's flat, getting up to the path for the Grant Groves, might be tricky.
