The giant forest was amazing. The drive is not for the faint of heart as it traverses some very windy curvy roads that are often Cliffside. Once you get to the top you can ride shuttles through the giant forest. Or you can drive. We went to the Sherman three which is the largest three on the planet. The walk... More

Great place to learn about the Sequoia trees. Can go on some nearby trails and a good place to take a break from the trails. They have shuttles during the busy season. Go early to avoid crowds.

Unbelievable to see the width of the trees. Can't even explain how mammoth they are. The color was like a red Irish setter.

This beautiful spot was well worth the hundreds of miles detour. The trees themselves are hugely atmospheric and the forest provided a welcome respite from the summer heat. The walk up to and views from Moro Rock was completely breathtaking.

Breathtaking trees, and less crowded than General Sherman. The trail is pretty level. We had a hard time finding detailed trail maps in the park itself, so if that's important to you, you may want to find one online before you go.

Although we visited Kings Canyon National Park as well, we preferred Sequoia because of the trees which are awe inspiring. Definitely take the short hike and see the General Sherman tree - it is believed to be the largest living thing on earth.

On our way north, we spent one day in Sequoia, Giant Forest and Kings Canyon, but we could easliy have used more time there. Excellent trails and good roads makes it easy to get around. Don't miss this experience if you are in the area.
