A short, easy walk with enormous, giant sequoia trees. One horizontal sequoia the agile adult in me even climbed through. Though trying to park in the nearest lot can be an impossible task during busy times (summer weekends + holidays), the city of Visalia has buses running throughout each parking lot/campsite, just in case they are extremely busy...but be prepared to wait. We lucked out and drove up from another hike later in the day (6pm Saturday 9/3/16), and were able to park in the lot across from the Giant Forest museum. Though not quite as tall as redwoods, these massive giants are officially the "biggest" trees in the world, just not the tallest. This is a must see and hence what this park is named after.

I really liked this hike. Its very easy, and loops you through a lot of trees. Ive never been before so it was great walking directly through the big trees. It was icy the day I went and very slippery, but because of the snow/ice no one was there. Made is fun being almost alone.

A wonderful short trail, starting at the Museum.
After a short walk from here you cross the street to get to the actual loop. We had the incredible luck to see some bears. One of them was lying next to the trail so that we had to turn around and walk all the way back
