... On this trail, but still a nice small park with impressive sequoia trees. Only 5$ to enter and you also get a nifty little brochure with information.

You fill really small😄 recommend to left car in bottom part and walk cca 8 km up to top of the park. Majority of visitors are just going by car to top part, however the walk across park is amazing!!!

It was difficult to find it but you need to find the sign "Trail of 100 Giants". They need to have a bigger signage. The place is awesome. We walked about an hour. We even bought our dogs with us. They loved it. We took...More

The short hiking trails around the huge trees was very enjoyable and quiet - not crowded at all. It is about an hours drive up from Kernville on a winding road, but well worth the trip.

This is a very heavily used park setting for viewing some of the majestic Redwoods. A paved trail winds through and around some of the majestic trees. When we were there it was a little too crowded. A vendor runs the operation so you pay...More
