Easy walk. Unbelievable! It is just awesome to see this huge tree and can't believe it is over 3000 years old.

Not only was it awesome to see the world's largest tree in all it's glory. But my fiance proposed to me in front of it!

“Awe is too simple a word”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Breath taking, stunning, a reminder of how small we are and how great creation is. What a beautiful tree and area. Take time to sit and gaze at this marvel. Take time to give thanks that it has been saved for future generations.

Heard a wonderful young female tour guide talk about this tree. She was so proud of the tree and its history, you would have thought her family planted it. If there will be a talk on the tree, stay for it.

“Impressive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

Of course tons of tourists but really nice to see up close. If you haven't been its a given you have to but also check out Big Tree Trail, Moro Rock, and Kings Canyon scenic highway.
