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.

About a mile roundtrip (or handicap area access below) - going down on the way to see the trees, and back up a gentle slope with some shallow stairs back up to the parking area.

When we visited the General Grant Tree, there was snow on the ground - and on the trail. The Park Service was trying to make the trails more accessible and was plowing them. The trail was just wide enough for a bobcat. And he was...More

The trails give great views of the trees. With interesting facts and history. It does not take long to do the loop. Worth it for sure.

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.
