We walked the mile+ trail to the Rock and then climbed it. I would recommend just climbing it unless you want to hike through the giant trees on a non-paved natural trail. We did both and it was beautiful but left us tired. The view from the top of the Rock is amazing. The climb is strenuous, at least for... More

Whether you're a nature lover or not, the Sequoia National Park is a majestic place that must be visited at least once. So many times on this trip (which was an extensive road-trip, not likely to be repeated), I found myself grateful the kids were with us to see these things. General Sherman, the largest (not tallest) tree in the... More

We made to the top. The panorama was spectacular. Take the shuttle bus, it will leave from the museum and go through the higher meadows and you'll have a look also at tunnel log

Definitely one of "must do's" in Sequoia park. Parking may get busy during summer, so go there early. We had ages 5 to 65 in our group, all of them managed to climb all the way in moderate 80 degrees temperature at noon. View from top is fantastic. If you go early, you will avoid crowds and get more time... More

Easy to drive to if you are already in the park, or take the shuttle bus #2. Keep in mind there are about 15 parking spaces so you may not get a spot, we didn't have a problem on a Tuesday. This climb is not for the faint of heart, very steep, and some spots do not have a hand... More

This 350 step natural attraction is worth panting up the stairs to see the very top views. The steps are a little slim and narrow, but you just step aside to let others pass, and it is amazing to see a panoramic of Kings Canyon and Sequoia Parks. It is safe and the railings are secure. Breathtaking views west and... More

For those with kids this hike can be a bit much on the nerves (especially for those who are not a huge fan of heights). There are railings all the way along the hike up but for me it was still a bit precarious. So be forewarned, it is fun and the views spectacular but if you have little ones... More

This is a stairway walk up a very large rock. My son loved it. My wife and I made it half way up. The problem is not the climb. The problem is that the stairway is VERY exposed to a very high drop. If the weather if poor, forget this hike. If you have a fear of heights, you are... More

A long climb, and I am a big guy, but it was worth it. There are places to rest, and the top is roomy and not scary despite the precipitous droppoffs. We took the park bus to get there. No problems!
