The trees are absolutely magnificent. It''s a really easy drive from Bakersfield and it gets pretty nice when you get closer, as the forest gets more dense. It's a simple walk a long a paved path so you can take anyone young or old. If you're looking for something a little more adventuresome, take the same road a little farther north and head up Dome Rock for great views.

It was cool to see the biggest tree in the world, but it isn’t really a hike. It is sort of one of those things that you do to say that you have done it, but aren’t dying to do again. Would recommend going when it is not busy (early morning or offseason) so that it is easier to take pictures without worrying about other people being in it.

Really nice hike. Roads were closed due to snow when we visited so took the long way, but was worth it because of all the Mule deer that crossed the trail in front of us. Not recommended on a cloudy day, because then there is no view from the top.

The perfect walk to start your trip into the Sequoias. Within this hour you’ll learn everything you need to know to spot young or old sequoias, what type of environment is most suitable for growth, and a little history about the park. It’s perfect for all ages and super easy to complete.

Fell in love with the forest

I've done this trail several times, and I never get tired of it. It is one of my favorites!

Beautiful trail! A little crowded today and the trail was icy. Can’t wait to come back in the Spring! Happy New Year!

Fun, short hike up stairs to a beautiful view. Not recommended for those who are afraid of heights!

Absolutely beautiful! No snow or ice, but I did it before tonight’s storm. You can’t beat the views of the mountains or the valley below.

THIS BEAUTIFUL TREE IS NAMED AFTER A RACIST? What will blow your mind even more is that the tree is located in the Sequoia national park and Sequoia is the name of a man who backed Andrew Jackson. Yes the same Andrew Jackson that forced Cherokee natives on the trail of tears. General Sherman was a racist and led not just to the extermination and relocation of thousands of indigenous people to reservations, but the annihilation of nearly all of the wild buffalo. If you don't believe me here is a quote.

"The more Indians we can kill this year the fewer we will need to kill the next, because the more I see of the Indians the more convinced I become that they must either all be killed or be maintained as a species of pauper. Their attempts at civilization is ridiculous..." -Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman

Absolutely beautiful trek. I loved stopping at all the "named trees." The Senate stole the day for me. Stunning!

Bring bug spray and you'll be thankful;

Fun hike gives you a nice little tour of the sequoias.

Hiked this trail on Dec 19, 2018. It was fully covered by snow during this season, so you have to walk on snow for the whole time. If you have proper shoes, it's still a easy one. We spent a lot of time on the trial to take pictures. It took 2h to hike around 2 miles to reach the end to see the fall. Although half of the fall had been forzen, it still looked amazing. We took around 40mins to walk back since no need for more pics. It's a quite trail and we only met one couple for the whole time while we were in the trail. For those ones looking and easy trail with beautiful views in this park, I high recommend this one.

Beautiful hike in the snow. Waterfall is partially frozen - a good winter look! I used snowshoes from the campground entrance to the trailhead, and then the road was cleared on my way back so I could walk. Traction was helpful on the trail.

This hike was a little disappointing. Went on this trail trip with my Bakersfield College Forestry class and the forester that guided us did not know anything about anything. The trees are big and the trail was really great for people with wheelchairs but wildlife was awkwardly absent. I really did not like that wildlife was absent.

Very beautiful trail. The waterfall was frozen when I hiked this one but still nice to see. Camping was really cool but full so get a spot early. *Warning store you food properly because the bears are brave here. We saw two black bear in one night of being there. Drive slow to not kill these beautiful black bears and their cubs.

Short walk to the top. I like the views leading up the top more than at the top. It was a little cloudy the day we went, but still worth it.

Amazing views!

It’s just a walk but it worth it to see

I love the view

One of those things you “have” to see... but definitely not exciting. A long walk (downhill) on cement - my knees weren’t a fan of that bit after a previous hike. Then a ton of people crowded around a tree for photos.... just don’t make this the only thing you do that day and you’re golden. Maybe go earlier too.. then a lovely walk back uphill on cement...

I was fortunate to have the views to myself. Less trafficked than Moro rock, tho I recommend doing both Bc they have different views. This trail is super short, you can see Moro Rock from Hanging Rock. Excellent photo op. Sat and relaxed for a bit there before moving on. (See photo of girl hanging from rock - that’s me hah)

Lots of people, but it didn’t ruin the views. I sorta ran the stairs a bit for exercise, but stopped very often. Personally I think the views climbing the stairs up were better than at the top, but that’s only Bc it was after fires, so a very hazy day. Doesn’t take long, worth it. Ok for kids too.

11/24/18 Great little walk through some giants. Entire path is paved and highly trafficked. Very touristy location. It was pretty cool considering it was our first encounter with the sequoias. After we left here we drove north to hike Camp Nelson trail. It was a great balance as there were very few people and still saw some grand sequoias!
