“Nice trail and walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2014

If you are visiting the area, I would recommend this for a nice stroll through some sequoias. The tree of course is huge, but there is also a fallen down tree to walk through and others to see.

“A must see part of Kings Canyon!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

The walk is easy from the parking area and well worth it. So much history and so much to see. Make sure to take a camera, you will want it.

“Great sequoia-lined family trail”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

I liked the General Sherman visit too, but there was more to see at General Grant with the walk-through sequoia and lots of other sequoias to look at. Less crowded too.

“Another great grouping of sequoias”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Like the General Sherman, the General Grant tree is another must-see while in the park. The trail was nice and paved - easy walking. There were some interesting downed trees that were cool to see while walking the trail - there's a tree you can walk through; that was pretty neat. There's also a cabin nearby that was used by settlers a long time ago.
