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.

Very good place: Easy short walk on paved roads among giant sequoias, some standing, some fallen. A lot of opportunities for pictures, also picnic tables to have a snack in pleasant environment. Parking is for a small fee. Also there is a campground on cite.

Words can't describe how amazing it is when you first see these giants. The first tree on the trail is a little over 240 ft and almost 20 ft in diameter!!! As you walk down the trail each tree has a name and accompanied with some knowledge nuggets. There is a spot where two Sequoia's grew together and fused and... More

On the Saturday PM of Labor Day weekend, this nice giant redwood forest is full of tourists, and finding a parking space on the roadside can be quite a challenge, as parking lots filled up quickly. Nevertheless, we spent two hours walked around the trials, climbed onto the fallen trunks, and amazed by the giants around us. The two dozen... More
