We visited the place at summer and had a lot of impressions and beautiful pictures walking along the trail and climbing over the fallen giant sequoias. Highly recommended! But you need to plan your arrival route very well! The problem is finding the right way to arrive to the place (at least from the LA direction). We planned the route... More

We were in awe the whole ride up there and back to our lodging. About 3/4 of the way from town to the trail we started seeing snow. When we got there we were elated that there was a light dusting of snow everywhere. Walking on the snowy/icy pathways got hairy at times but we are from Florida and it... More

The weather was wet and cold, 45 deg F is not a September temperature that is very common in Southern California. We were both woefully under-dressed for the occasion but with some warm tea inside us we ventured forth after paying our five bucks parking fee to the ranger - a damp transaction that took place beneath a large green...

We had 2 small children with us, and this trail is fully accessible for chairs or strollers. It's maybe just under a mile around this small grove of huge views. Park across from the museum and it's a short walk.

Not as many people to contend with at this trail with up close views of the sequoia trees. Almost like private hands on tour. A pamphlet at the trail head explained the trees along the trail and what to look for. Generally a level trail paved in most spots. A better viewing experience than the much more crowded General Sherman... More

All the reviews about how easy and accessible this trail is are right. What struck me as a solo traveler was when I took the advice mentioned here by others and just let the families and loud visitors pass me by, & then was able to just sit & absorb the serenity of this place. It was peaceful and magical.... More

This little nook of the Sequoia National Forest Escapes most tourists, but boasts incredible trees, saplings, sunny and shaded nooks, and much privacy.

This was our first look at the giant trees on our 3 week trip to the West Coast, and we were all amazed. The trail itself is easy to navigate, and is very scenic.

This trail is a fun one with a lot of variety of things to see. The weather was a little warm, but comfortable!
