Not as big as Gen Sherman, but equally impressive. Not as old, not as tall but it has a larger diameter. When you think about the fires, droughts and storms these trees have endured over centuries of time, you have to be awed! Don't miss...More

Loved walking this trail and seeing all the big trees. General Grant is huge but showing his age with lots of fire scars, glad it is fenced off and hope it lives many more years.

This was my husband and I’s last stop when visiting Sequoia. There is ample parking, bathrooms, and a water fountain. The walk from the parking lot to the trail is extremely short and the trail is about .5 miles long total. It takes you to...More

Very kid friendly and worth the hour long drive from Sequoia. Plan to spend 1-1.5 hours exploring with young kids here.

Unlike the trudge back from the Sherman tree, this stroll around the Grant Grove, is flat , short and shady. Beautiful trees , well maintained, well marked and close parking

Magnificent specimen of a Sequoia tree. Truly is worth the hike to the tree and the historic and scientific signage is interesting. Paved pathway leads to the tree making it accessible by whe3lchairs and strollers. This is great, just do not be in a hurry...More

This is a short and paved trail through some monumental trees. It will be crowded, but is worth the stroll just to see General Grant--the tree.

The whole trail is amazing, the tunnel log gives you and idea of how big these trees actually are. General Grant is stunning (and in our opinion more impressive than General Sherman). The tail could be done in 10 minutes but we ended up spending...More

Unless you plan to do a lot of hiking or just sitting around relaxing along the river you will not need a full day in Kings Canyon.

Hello, obviously late on a response but I hope you were able to find that the trees were near each other and you were able to see both.
