Cool short hike. The only problem is since it’s so short, it’s very popular so you can’t really hike your speed because of the crowd.

Absolutely stunning trail

Overall, an easy hike through the sequoias to the stair climb. Beautiful views of the valley all through out the trail and tons of wild life. The stair climb can be difficult but their are plenty of places to stop and break and enjoy the views before reaching the insane panoramic views at the top. Get their early before it gets busy to truly appreciate it :)

Amazing view.

Short hike, but the elevation will definitely catch up to you on your way back to the railhead. Great for a quick stop and photo-op.

Beautiful nature scenes and some animals to be seen as well! Great to do with kids.

Took this on the way to camp on the High Sierra Trail--this is actually just a stop on the longer trail. Views were great here on a clear day (our hike in was hazier and not as lovely), and it's probably worth the stop if you are exploring Sequoia and want to step away from the actual Sequoia trees.

This takes you along an exposed view of the valley after walking through some of the trees and covered trail near the Crescent Meadow parking area.

There are quite a few things to do in this area, although we were camping overnight and just kept on backpacking past Eagle's View. You won't need anything to get there, since it's about 0.6 miles. It may not be good with kids since there is no railing.

amazing to see the biggest tree in the world, super easy hike, can even take shuttle back to trailhead if you don't want to hike back, but very very crowded

We made this a 9.2 mile hike by taking the Trail of the Sequoias out to the High Sierra Trail to see Eagle View. Had lunch at Crescent Meadow and looped back up the Congress Trail. Glad we saw General Sherman early because the tourists were swarming by the time we returned. Once we left the paved area, we saw no other people again until Crescent Meadow. The hike back up to the parking lot is definitely no fun after a 9 miler. What was annoying though was picking up other people’s trash. Brought back water bottles we found left behind on the Congress Trail. No respect for such a magnificent area.

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

Beautiful views! Well worth the climb!

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 !

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

Easy going loop. I skipped it the first time around because of snow but went back during the warmer times of the year. A bit congested at some points but nothing too crazy.

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
