Short and easy trail to a huge and impressive old growth tree. Four stars because of the crowds that you will always see.

The hike down is easy, the hike back up a little challenging but there are plenty of benches and rest stops along the way so you can enjoy the largest tree on earth.

Lovely trees! The sign for elevation gain was around 250 feet- so consider your level of fitness. Beautiful walk, though crowded which was to be expected.

If you want a hike in the woods this is NOT it, (Go to Grant's Grove) If you want a walk in the park, then this is a must do, Easy (yes) Crowded (yes)... But how often do you get to see the "biggest" of something

Pretty much the only way to see the worlds largest tree. :) Good to work for it a little. Also has some good options for extending the hike.
