Don't miss it! Trail to the tree is easy with easy parking. Many other Giants in the surrounding grove.

Easy trail for all to enjoy. This is the perfect alternative to see Sequoias without hiking far uphill and possible downhill.

This tree is near the General Grant Visitor's Center and has a parking area with restrooms. The path is entirely paved and has the Gamlin Cabin and a tree on its side which is fun for photos. The General Grant Tree has a fence around it so pictures do not adequately reflect its size, in my opinion.

Many of the trails in the park are accessible by most everyone. This one leads to inspirational sequoias that take you breath away. Bucket list.

This is a beautiful piece of the Sequoia pie with General Grant at the center. But all around him is like a National Geographic film. A short stroll or a nice mile walk is available. You're going to love it.

My husband was recovering from foot surgery and was able to appreciate this giant by parking close enough to get a good view of the beautiful grove around this tree.

This tree has some history behind it and it is really neat when you get to the spot. Trail you can walk on to get to the tree. I really enjoy the peaceful scenic views.
