It's a bit off the main roads but certainly an enjoyable side trip. The easy paved path and trail markers take you very close to the giants and into the forest. When we visited they had been doing some clearing of the undergrowth and smaller trees so it resembled a giant game of pick-up-sticks. The cut logs made it easy... More

Be advised the drive to the Trail of 100 Giants is windy and no guard rails which made my wife quite nervous, just drive cautiously. For some reason all the parking areas were closed off due to renovations so we ended up parking on the side of the road. The whole walk is very easy and can take an hour... More

This was worth the detour on our way to Anaheim from Utah. The trees are majestic - pictures don't do them justice. The trail is easy and can be done in an hour.

Trees that touch the sky. We love the Sequoia National Forest and this is always one of our favorite stops. These trees are amazing! It is awesome to imagine all of the history behind them. Five dollar parking across the street. An asphalt paved trail takes you through the forest. I believe it is wheelchair accessible all the way through.... More

Barely into the grove you wil came upon perhaps the largest tree of them all. An asphalt paved trail is easy to negotiate and wheelchair accessible. If using a wheelchair, one of the electric jobs is preferable, as this can be a bit hilly. These trees are tremendous. One downside is that some 'progressive' has chiseled some of the words... More

We thought we'd make a trip up to this southern most grove of Sequoia's while staying in Bakersfield. Since we had our dog with us, we decided Sequoia NATIONAL FOREST was a better bet than Sequoia National Park (most NP's are pretty strict while most NF are dog friendly). So, I had printed a map OF the Trail but not... More

I didn't even know about this trail until we drove by half by chance, and almost didn't stop because it was a little late. But I'm so glad we did! I had previously seen sequoias at Toulumne Grove, and later at General Sherman and General Grant trails in Sequoia and Kings Canyon national parks, but I found this to be... More

One should definitely walk this trail when in the area. It's an easy hike on a paved trail - ADA accessible. It's not strenuous at all and its just a lovely place with many beautiful trees. Also was very uncrowded, peaceful & quiet.

The trail of 100 giants is a magnificent example of the ancient redwoods. Typically only found in coastal regions, these giants and the walking tour will not disappoint you. The weather is cool in the summer, and there are several campgrounds in the area if you are camping. This is a rather remote location, so be sure to bring plenty... More

To truly experience the majesty of the sequoias in peace and quiet this is the place to come to. I visited the Muir Woods two years ago which was impressive but very touristy. The Trail of 100 Giants is a totally different experience. You get a sense of being one with nature, breathing the air smelling of fresh cut pine,... More
