“A Very helpful Ranger here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

Good free video. A very helpful ranger who advised about the hikes. The centre closed early however well before 17.00 as we wanted to go back and view the "museum/display" bit after our walk. If you intend doing any hiking trails purchase the trail map for around $3. It is well worth it.

“Nice stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

This is a great stop prior to going to the General Grant Grove to get souvenirs and a little food. The Grant Grove provides of lots of walking paths and access for each individual to take a little side trip and stand next to these huge trees.
