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...

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!

We did this trail back in July. It was very crowded, but worth the stair climb.

Can’t go to Sequoia without taking the short hike down to see the General Sherman. Highly recommend continuing on the the Congress Trail while you’re down there. One of my favorite hikes anywhere.

Nice, easy, well maintained trail that weaves in and out of big trees and around meadows. Many connected loops here so you can make your hike as long as you want.

Got to drive through the tunnel log on the way. I believe this road may close during winter.

Lovely short walk with many sequoia tree displays. Information boards are really useful. Was November and still very busy with people but quite a big car park. Toilets at the car park. Wheel chair accessible as is all paved out but big hill to get up and down to go see trees.

Steep climb with steps up to the top of Moro rock. Was busy even though was November but was also a weekend. Great boards up with interesting information along the path. We headed up here for sunset and was beautiful, the views from the top are breathtaking. Plenty of parking and toilets at the trailhead.

trail head visibly marked ,sad to say valley air terrible due to wildfires. Family and I came up from nearby Hanford to take day hike, enjoyed it very much, trail easy to hike maintained as a trail could be as always trip hazards one in particular was a steel post for embankment reinforcements was protruding up out of ground at a trail corner cutback. EOL the falls well worth hike falls were running well had lunch took a little nap headed back, traffic light on trail encountered 1 family on trail and at falls another couple showed up. anyway a great way to enjoy nature

trail head was visibly marked sad to say valley air was terrible due to wildfires. Trail itself was easy to hike temps were excellent, 70ish traffic real light 1 other fasmily on trail end result were the falls they were running well had lunch and a little nap headed back nice day hike.

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.

Great stroll.

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 :)

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.

This is a great trail for everyone! lots of animals (and evidence of them too). my daughter loved seeing all of the burned trees, the woodpecker holes and the bear claw marks on the trees. Definitely worth doing with older kids (8 and over).

Like everyone has said, gorgeous country. Campground was fine.

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

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

We are visiting CA from CO and we landed on this trail. It was an easy trot and worth the views. There were about 20 others on the trail to go along with 3-4 black bears. DO NOT use the directions link for this trail. We spent about an hour on the wrong trail haha. Follow the directions from some of the previous comments. Enjoy!!

great trail second time this week

Great trail during late October.
