Very good place: Easy short walk on paved roads among giant sequoias, some standing, some fallen. A lot of opportunities for pictures, also picnic tables to have a snack in pleasant environment. Parking is for a small fee. Also there is a campground on cite.

Words can't describe how amazing it is when you first see these giants. The first tree on the trail is a little over 240 ft and almost 20 ft in diameter!!! As you walk down the trail each tree has a name and accompanied with some knowledge nuggets. There is a spot where two Sequoia's grew together and fused and... More

On the Saturday PM of Labor Day weekend, this nice giant redwood forest is full of tourists, and finding a parking space on the roadside can be quite a challenge, as parking lots filled up quickly. Nevertheless, we spent two hours walked around the trials, climbed onto the fallen trunks, and amazed by the giants around us. The two dozen... More

The sequoias are enormes, giant also fallen show their roots. The National Park is a bit hidden, road are nagród and the trip can take 2 hours while driving from S or W but is a must to see. The parking place is not very big and the place is relatively quiet comparing to parks I've visit.

We drove up to see the Trail of 100 Giants from Los Angeles. It was a long drive (4 hours), hence why we chose to visit the southern part of the forest and not venture all the way to the National Park area (further north). One item of note that the Ranger shared with us - this trail is in... More

We visited the Trail of 100 Giants in late May and I'm just getting around to writing all my reviews. This trail was one of the highlights of my trip...it is just hard to imagine that trees can get that big. I was actually equally amazed by the size of the huge Ponderosa Pines in the area...I'm from the south,... More

Beautiful walking path with very nice conditions when we visited in August 2015. Great opportunity to see the Sequoias up close and to be educated on their natural environment. I would recommend this to any one who loves National Parks.

WE visited The Trail of 100 Giants this summer and really enjoyed the experience. After visiting Sequoia National Forest and Kings Canyon, I was disappointed at how small the trail was. I was also surprised that the The Trail of 100 Giants is 3 hours away from Grant Grove and all the major attractions of Sequoia National Forest. The trail... More

With easy to find signs, good parking and a smooth paved trail, this little "hike" can appeal to everyone in the family. Being in the National Forest, you can even bring your on-leash dog. We enjoyed this walk on a hot summer day. There's plenty of shade (bring water for yourself and your dog - there's none here). Beautiful trees... More

... On this trail, but still a nice small park with impressive sequoia trees. Only 5$ to enter and you also get a nifty little brochure with information.
