This is a gem and open limited hours in the Winter. On our visit 4-21-15 we were charged a $5.00 a car fee. It is a donation and you fill out an envelope and place in a box placed at the entrance. At the bottom of the parking lot are two bathrooms. You will walk across the street and enter... More

A really excellent stand of Sequoia trees, majestic, and picturesque. The road is a little bumpy, but not too bad. Services are limited in the area, so come prepared. Easy hike, trails well maintained too, you might need a little water if you are out of shape.

We drove over through Kennedy Meadows from Ridgecrest to reach this place. The drive was challenging in spots, with many twists and turns and narrow mountain roads. BE SURE YOU HAVE ENOUGH GAS!!! There is nowhere to gas up if you are running low. There are a few gas stations in the towns on the edges of the forest, but... More

If you're impressed with the big trees, you don't want to miss this! Plain and simple! We also came upon a mother bear with THREE cubs on this trail!!

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
