Loved this trail. Great way to spend the day.
We had a blast with our two dogs! It was beautiful and majestic. Definitely an easy hike with lots of people and dogs but some how you still get lost in the forest and forget they are there. Definitely worth the trip, also it is nice and shady from all the trees and a nice temperature even on a 100 degree day. The path is pretty narrow considering it is paved so keep this in mind if you bring your dogs, they will definitely have to be comfortable being that close with other people, children, and dogs.
It was fun and easy but part of it was closed.
very good hike, for beginning hikers. Just make sure that when your at the higher elevation you don't loose your balance, because the trail does get slimmer, later.
Such and amazingly beautiful place. if you would like to see what we saw click the link to watch our video
The Giant sequoias were truly amazing, man, I didn't know a tree could get so tall! Thats pretty much the highlight of this trail for me. The parking costed us five dollars, which isn't bad, so we didn't complain. Most the hike is also paved, which for us bored us over time. Overall, the sequoias are worth seeing, the hike though is only centered around that, so be prepared for just a fun little stroll when approaching this hike.
This was a really great way to check out the huge sequoias in the area. The paved trail and many benches makes this a very accessible trail. It can get crowded and it's certainly not a "wilderness hike," but it's very much worth seeing. There are some really cool trees you can even stand inside!
This is the second time I've gone to trail. It's so beautiful and the weather has always been very tolerable in the summer months. The drive is very windy and at times, down right scary. Inadequate signs on the way... There aren't any. The sign that points to the trail at the 4 way stop is several feet in from the corner and easily missed. More signs would make this drive a lot better. Even having been there once before, I still had the feeling I had missed my turn. All in all its a majestic walk.
While lost in search of our Kern River trail head we ran across this nice stroll under the Giants. Leave your 50 L packs in the car and feel free to strap on a day pack/ fanny pack and meander beneath some impressive sequoias. Be advised: If you are looking for that "wilderness experience" you may be disappointed. The trails are all neatly laid asphalt paths with comfortable benches and information placards aplenty. After paying our $5 cash parking fee, the attendant there handed us a nice guide brochure and informed us that leaving the paths was totally allowed and for us to feel free to climb on whatever we liked. This is not always the case where sequoias are involved ( shallow root systems ). She said this was allowed due the low volume of visitors to this site. Despite the tame, paved paths this easy hike affords some true majestic examples of the California Sequoia.
