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

It's a very simple trail, we paid $5 for parking which is very reasonable. The trees are all marked out, although I think there is some updating going on. All in all a lovely walk! Well worth a visit.

Drove about 2 hours to find this and was not disappointed. The Redwoods are amazing and the setting with mature and fallen trees is great. Well paved to help the trek. Shame so many Cedars are dying due to a bug infestation in the area. Didn't change our view though, that this is a hidden gem. A bit more parking... More

Before you go - be sure to check if the road is open. Due to snow and fallen trees and boulders the road needs to be cleared. It's an amazing place. The trees are incredible. It's a very easy walk and parking is directly across from the trail.
