This was a highlight on our trip. The drive in from the the south gets gradually more scenic until you hit the Trail of the 100 Giants. These trees are amazing and the photos can only partially capture the true size. While entrance to the park in free, there is a $5 parking fee. The parking area has toilets and... More

I've been to the Sequoias 4 times in my life and it always takes me to a magical place. Brings me to tears how beautiful it is. This is the first time we saw bears. And they could care less that we were there. There were lots of deer too. There was a bear cub that was just hanging out... More

The short hiking trails around the huge trees was very enjoyable and quiet - not crowded at all. It is about an hours drive up from Kernville on a winding road, but well worth the trip.

We headed up into the forest the day after the fourth traffic was not as bad as we expected. Made it to the trail of 100 giant parking there was a little bit difficult, The parking lot is not very big and there was a wait to find a spot. Parking is five dollars which is well worth it. The... More

This is a very heavily used park setting for viewing some of the majestic Redwoods. A paved trail winds through and around some of the majestic trees. When we were there it was a little too crowded. A vendor runs the operation so you pay $5 per car for parking. We had a hard time finding parking because of the... More

We travelled up from Tulare to tick this off our list. Previous post says it all - Just magnificent. If you have the time, stop off for a swim and feed at the Californian Hot Springs to refresh. They topped off a pretty awesome day for me.

This is a good place to see the giant sequioas if you don't have enough time to go to Sequioa and King's Canyon National Park. The trail though does not have a lot of the humongous trees like the park. But is enough to satisfy ones curiosty about how huge these trees are. Paved loop trail easy for the kids... More

Trail of 100 Giants is a great way to enjoy the magnificent trees of the Giant Sequoia National Monument. An easy walk on a paved trail makes for an enjoyable hike in the woods. Make sure you bring your camera!
