Kings Canyon Visitor Center
Kings Canyon Visitor Center is the perfect place to stop for information on your Kings Canyon adventure. Pick up a book, map, or souvenir, and talk to one of the "locals" for first-hand information on good places to check out!
In Grant Grove Village, three miles east from the Big Stump Entrance on Highway 180, the Kings Canyon Visitors Center serves as a compelling introduction to the “trinity of treasures” in Kings Canyon National Park: giant sequoia groves, the canyon lands, and the High Sierra. Books, maps, gifts and educational materials for sale.

Big Tree Talk:
Some of the sequoias in Kings Canyon National Park tower more than 300 feet tall, and the world-famous Grant Tree is more than 40 feet wide at its base. Meet a ranger at the base of the General Grant Tree to find out what it takes to be one of the largest trees on earth. 20 minutes.
Ranger in the Grove:
How big? How old? What happens in a fire? Look for a ranger or volunteer naturalist along the Grant Tree Trail to have your giant sequoia questions answered. Informal, ongoing.
