Also huge tree but much more accessible than Sherman tree. Also there is fallen tree which people 100 years ago used as shelter. Many more giant trees in this grove.

Easy hike with flat walkway to see the General Grant tree. On this short loop you could even use Stroller or Wheelchair. I suggest you add on to this the North Grove Loop and Dead Giant trail to the Lake Sequoia overlook!!

This tree is amazing. I'm so glad we took the time to see it. It was almost a religious experience, well worth the short walk.

A very pleasant visit. The sequoia trees are amazing to look at and admire. Once parked up, it is only a short walk to see the 2nd largest tree in the world - named General Grant. Worth a visit if you are in the area....More

The sequoia trees were unbelievable. Buy the informative guide that tells about stops along the trail. It talks about the natural and historical features of the area.

Wide, paved paths with many stone stairs: a few steps down, then a nice stroll to the next set of stairs. Nice for seniors, little kids and everyone in between, even if you are a bit out of breath from the 7000+ foot elevation. Accessible...More
