Grant Tree

Well worth a visit. A nice trail including a hollow fallen sequoia which you can walk through and the Grant Tree itself.

This trail is a nice easy warm up for families - especially with small children. The trail is paved, which is sort of a bummer, but also nice accessibility for strollers, wheelchairs... Beautiful!

Words can not express the magnificent beauty of this place. The grand scale of these beautiful trees is breathtaking . We were not able to see the grand Sherman tree, the oldest living tree in the world because we had our dog with us. Most of the park you'll be able to bring your pets in a leash... just not... More

The grove is excellent - a little more rural than the General Sherman trail but still plenty to see - the old homestead and the fallen tree are pretty special but the biggest eye opener is the stumps left from the loggers.

The area is stunning, the trees are amazing! The trail is well kept with wooden railings to guide you and lots of informative signs telling about the area and trees as well as benches to sit and take a rest. The General Grant tree is not the only sight to see along the trail, give yourself at least an hour... More

Always want to see those big sequoias and General Grant is good example. The trail to see it is quite short and scenic. There is many other sequoias on the way and couple of boards with interesting information about this trees.

Shortes trail than trail around General Sherman tree. The path is very good - walking about 10 minutes from and to parking, with written points about Sequoia. There is also a fallen tri – nice to walk through. The points for taking the pictures are good. Worth to visit.

The trail through the forest to the General Grant is a short walk on a trail that is not well marked. It is steep in places and crosses the road. It is worth the walk to see this old giant.
