Being in the Sequoias is a great experience. Far from the city hustle, it is great to be renewing my connection with nature. The park is in great condition, the only sad thing is, on the way up the mountain, you can see lots of areas where tall trees have died in past years, due to the long drought.

We were there February 28th and there was a lot of snow with some roads not passable without chains but still worth seeing these magnificient trees, especially the General Grant Tree.

Favorite area to camp in! I love Azalea campground and the visitor center. Remember, leave no trace! Do NOT write or carve on rocks, do not litter and do not feed wildlife! Pick up pet feces & throw way in trash, bury human feces & completely put out campfires. Preserve nature!

I took my mom and sisters on a little excursion they had never been to the park. They were in all of the total experience.

Parking in summer is a hike away, in winter, there is parking just downhill from the tree along the General's Highway. General Sherman is not the oldest tree in the park, but it is the largest living organism on the earth.. awesome.

If you have reached Grant Grove, you must drive down and see the General Grant tree. It is the 3rd largest by volume. but also, the area surrounding it is beautiful! The walk from the car is only about 5-6 minutes, so it is easy for everyone. Beside General Grant, you can walk through a fallen tree. Take 30-60 minutes... More

The General Grant tree - the third largest tree in the world by volume - has been dubbed the nation's Christmas tree and is surrounded by several equally impressive neighboring giants.

Kind of a mixed stop. Definitely go, but when we went, the visitor's center was closed, the shop was small and kind of empty. At least go see General Grant tree.

There is nothing like the majesty of the Sequoias! We spent a good hour meandering the trail to and from General Grant. My wife wanted to HUG a sequoia, so she did and she was amazed. "It's so soft" she said. The grandeur is beyond belief.
