Short but keep ur heart rate up!!!

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.

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!

Very nice hike. The trail is in great condition and the incline isn’t too strenuous.

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!

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.

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.

I did this trail November 25th 2018 started at lodgepole campground and when all the way up to Twin Lakes. I had always intended to make it a single day hike and by the time I got the Twin Lakes my legs were pretty pumped out so I didn't go up to the summit. Besides the root was covered in icy snow and I didn't have any crampons and didn't want to risk it.

I passed two sets of hikers coming down from Twin Lakes and one lady who passed me on the way up. by the time I got to Twin Lakes she had already visited probably ate her lunch and was on the way down. she was probably in her mid 20's and I'm twenty years older but in good shape for my age. it took me 3.5 hours to make it up.

because there is a 2in layer of fresh snow I could tell that nobody had attempted to go to the summit, at least not since thanksgiving day when it last snowed.

the views from the lake are beautiful but the tree line is high enough that you cannot see much of the surrounding territory. I agree with other reviewers that to get the best out of this hike you should try to scale at least part way up the summit wall.

the trail is very well-marked but as with all trails when snow covers the ground that's hard to follow. my Samsung Galaxy was able to hold a GPS signal the whole way and so alltrails was able to record my progress. I always find that very useful since it's easy to lose trails and the alltrails topo maps are great for finding your exact position at any given time using the GPS on your phone. course correction is a breeze that way.

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.

We did this trail in July and really enjoyed it! Not too much elevation and many areas of shade. It was very hot and we enjoyed cooling off and wading in the creek along the trail.

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

Did my first backpacking trip here. Excellent trail with great views and spots to stay at for the night. A couple of the spots, including by the lake, even have bear lockers, which was a nice touch. The campground by the lake also had a pit toilet. I went in mid-November and it was quite cold (low 20’s at night) so pack wisely.
