Visiting Grant Grove - Kings Canyon National Park
General Grant Grove is a 1/3 of a mile paved loop located 1 mile northwest of the Kings Canyon Visitor Center, holding nearly 2 dozen mature sequoias.

In 1940 General Grant Grove became a part of the newly created Kings Canyon National Park. It’s an easy, family friendly (wheelchair accessible) path.

It’s wonderful to walk inside the Gamlin Cabin, built of sugar pine logs with a sequoia roof by brothers Israel and Thomas Gamlin in 1872.

The General Grant Tree here holds the wonderful holiday distinction of being named our nation’s Christmas Tree in 1926 by President Coolidge.

You can walk through the Fallen Monarch, which is over 124 feet long & is thought to have fallen centuries ago after being hollowed out by fire.

2 men spent 9 days cutting down Centennial Stump. A 16 ft section of its trunk was sent to the 1876 America’s Centennial Exhibition in Philadelphia

Please remember the “Leave No Trace” principles when adventuring here - leave only footprints and take only pictures.
