“This trail is a paved loop that passes by the third largest tree in the world!”— Melissa Winfield
There is also a fallen tree that was hollowed out by fire one can even trek through. At the northern end of the trail sits a cabin that's over a hundred years old. Although the General Grant Tree brings the customers in, there are many awe inspiring giants to gaze at. You can just do this loop or explore more nearby trails, including the North Boundary Trail , which can be accessed close to the cabin or the North Grove loop on the west side of the parking lot.
