“Big trees, no crowds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

One can see dozens of giant sequoia trees, without competing for space on the paths. Summer weekends can attract slight crowds, but mid-week and off season (unless closed by snow) one can wander undisturbed. Well-paved paths (handicap friendly), good pamphlets, lovely mountain scenery and a picnic area on a meadow that is a delight.

“Should not be missed AWESOME! Wheelchairs? No.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

We were planning a trip to eat at McNalley's and since we were up there, figured we might as well see the giant Sequoias. Truly amazing. The biggest trees I have ever seen. As we were walking the trail we came upon a fallen giant. I have no idea when this tree fell but it must have been recent cause people say you can take wheelchairs on this trail. We were there in the middle of October and could not walk on the paved path all the way. I started walking around the tree and after much disagreement and ho hums finally talked the family into following. Once around the tree you can get back on the paved path but I wouldn't take a wheelchair into the dirt!. You don't get to the tree until about half way so if you have a disabled person just be aware that you have to turn around. I think the giants in the main part of Yosemite are a little better but it is much more of a walk. This is perfect for those that want to see the giants with very little effort.
