Easy walk down to “General Sherman”, but the climb back will tax the heart. High elevation, remember to breathe

This is a short but heavily trafficked trail in Sequoia NP. It’s a paved path that’s great for handicap, kids, and walkers. At the half way point, you’ll reach the General Grant Tree. It’s beautiful but very busy! You can also connect to this trail from other trails in the park. We connected from the Rimrock Trail. Worth a stop if you’re in Sequoia NP!

Short steep hike on paved trail with lots of steps. The trees make it a 5 star walk. All down hill to the tree and all back up. My mother has walking difficulties so my kids walked her down to the handicap access from General Sherman, i busted it back up to the parking lot and picked them up.

Short and steep hike up about 400 steps. Incredible panoramic views. Not for the person with vertigo.

Saved this trail for last on this day, and the weather cooperated! Wind was not bad, sun was also not bad, temperature was in the 40's. Saw two ravens on way up next to trail. Parking can be a problem at trailhead lot, so I had to wait till someone left. Stairs up were not too bad just take your time, take in the awesome views and you will get to the top. This is a very popular trail so be patient. This is not one you will have to yourself, unless you come really early.


Virtual Treadmill video of this hike can be seen on my YouTube Channel, copy and paste link below to watch it. Thanks.

We visited the General Sherman Trail on June 30th. The trees are definitely something to see!
It’s a paved easy walk. Go early if you want a less crowded visit.
If you’re not up for walking or have any sort of physical handicap, they have a easy to use shuttle system throughout the park that is very accommodating.
If you want a photo with the General Sherman Tree there will be a line that starts to form.
Be a pal and take the picture for the person before you.
It’s one of the worlds coolest trees. So by all means, get your photo.
After 10am this place turns into a total tourist spot and every tree becomes a live photo shoot for Instagram.
If you visit just be considerate and enjoy the moment.
But seriously, go see the trees!

Went to this trail on July 1st.
Easy climb up the stairs with amazing views at the top.
Check the weather before you go because it can be really intense on a hot day, wear your sunscreen.
The only challenge is that the stair passageway is a little narrow and it can be hard to pass by your fellow trail friends
Check it out for sure!

Not a hike, a great way to see General Sherman, the largest tree on the planet. Have to agree on getting there early. It is just a taste of what you can experience if you can afford the time to go on some of the Giant Trees trails where you can be away from the crowds.
Gave it a down check because I had been on the other trails around it and the crowds really detract from how neat the experience is.

I've done this one many times and it is worth it each time. The view of the Sierra Mountains is unlike anything else. There are quite a few stairs, but if you take them at a leisurely pace, it is too difficult. Every time I have been here there are always lots of tourists, so just be prepared to be patient. It is not too long of a distance, but if you are afraid of heights be aware there are a couple sections that you come very close to the edge.

Breathtaking views. The trail is steep, but well worth it.

Tip: Check the weather prior to climbing.

Too easy! Did it in 10 minutes and sunrise is amazing there !

It was great

Right off we see a large bear with a deer going the opposite direction. Some insects, easy short walk.

Love the view . Easy for anyone who is seeking for a fast and beautiful view.

It was a very scenic trail with amazing natural pools. The waterfall at the top was very low right now. I’d like to come back when there is more water.

Short hike with lots of stairs

Got there just before sunrise this morning. Amazing views. Super easy walk up the stairs. Had the rock to myself for about 30 mins. Blissful

We love this trail. It was easy and our kids had fun.

Really fun short climb to the top of the rock with great views

Beautiful trail in the gorge by the river. No wildlife sitings, but fun nonetheless!

Very easy walk. The way is paved so anybody can do it. Worth doing it, you’ll see general Sherman at the end.

This was so much better than the last time I was here. As we were coming out of the park after hiking in the valley, we decided to stop and hike around General Grant. We just started walking around the giant trees and to our surprise there wasn’t many people around which was awesome. The crews at this park are actually getting it ready for winter already in the middle of September. As these gentle giants rising up into the sky they were just awesome.

Loved our hike! Perfect temperature and not too busy. Clearly marked and very easy hike. Huge issue with mosquitoes and flies at the trailhead and continued along the hike

Great trail that is well taken care of. Beautiful scenery. Cant wait to go back when the water is flowing in the spring. Worth the trip up!!

Magical walk on paved trail through a magnificent grove of Sequoia trees. Not nearly as crowded or noisy as the General Sherman tree walkway, and I thought the General Grant was more majestic! Do not pass this by if you enter through the north entrance of the park- it’s right there!

Not really a hike, nice paved walk to see General Sherman. I thought the General Grant tree in Kings Canyon was a much more majestic tree and the short hike was much less crowded. Glad I saw both.
