Giant sequoia trees in Grant's Grove in Kings Canyon National Park

Here 2 trees are described in Grant's Grove in Kings Canyon National Park (Tulare County).

Grant's Grove, or General Grant Grove, is a rather small giant sequoia grove in the greater Kings Canyon National Park. The grove is accessible, and is one of the very few places where visitors can park their car really close to old growth giant sequoia trees. There is a short half a mile loop between really big trees, and around the most famous tree in the grove: General Grant, the third largest tree in the world.
