The trail is located directly across the street from the John Muir lodge. It's a great introduction to the sequoias and there are a lot to view. You are able to walk through a downed tree which was amazing.

Its a short walk and the trees are amazing too look at. No need for tours just go with your car and stop along the roads.

Easy, short walk among beautiful Giant Sequoias. A must do when in the park. Accessible for just about any level of mobility. The giant trees are amazing.

This is a short trail that will allow everybody to enjoy the view of the giant trees. Nicely paved, with shade in most parts, not at all strenuous, this trail should make the "to do" list of everybody that visits the area.

This place is much easier to access than the General Sherman tree. There is a small parking lot & the paths are beautiful. Take a drive over to this place, it is well worth it.

This is probably the second largest, oldest tree in the world (behind General Sherman). I still can't comprehend how massive this thing is. There is a fence that rings the entire base of the tree with signs up telling visitors not to cross it. PLEASE...More

The shortest hike you'll take in the park that leads to this massive General Grant Tree. Lovely to be witnessing one of the planet's massive living creature. Beautiful in every way.

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.
