We were somewhat disappointed that a lot of roads and trails were closed because of heavy snow fall when first hearing about it. However after a first few looks into the park, we thought it couldn't have been any more beautiful. The snow-covered park was amazing! One tip: rent the snow boots from the gift shop, it will give you... More

Another gigantic tree that has to be seen to be able to fully take it in how amazing these trees are. Easy walk to the tree from carpark. Must see!

The general consensus in the entire park is that you realized just who small you are, this tree trail is no exception. A mild easy trail for everyone, there is lots of history to learn, stop and look at the cabin and make sure you walk through the hollowed out trunk.

The General Grant tree is the second largest sequoia and the tree and the grove are well worth a visit. However I preferred the atmosphere and experience of visiting General Sherman in the Giant Forest so if you only have time to visit one of them, that would be my recommendation

The second biggest tree in the world is a must see. The only reason I gave four instead of five stars is that there is less signage for General Grant so the trail can get a bit confusing. Additionally, there were many inconsiderate tourists on the trail the same time as us which may have colored my opinion. Still a... More

Walking in this forest was like a fairy tale. You felt like a troll would pop out. Preferred grant grove over giant forest. Must stop.

We tried to find out about driving up into Kings Park to see the 'General Grant' a giant sequoia. The info was vague... So this may help fellow travellers. We stayed in Fresno and had a comfortable and interesting drive through orange and peach orchards also grape plantations.... The roads are well maintained the entire way up into the mountains,...

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
