“Unbelievable trees-nice trail, handicap friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Make sure to go online first and print out the trail map that explains sooo much about the trees, etc. on the walking trail. There are markers on the trail that we stopped & read the printout, learning so much about the trees, history, etc. Only one other couple was there and later 2 people in motorized wheelchairs came through. Having the map w/info is a must! We came from Bakersfield-would suggest you take 178 up through Kern Canyon on the way north and then after you leave the Trail of 1000 giants, take Route 155 west to 65 s back to Bakersfield. Was a very nice drive both ways-beautiful views everywhere!

“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.
