Saturday 19 January 2019: Closed parking lot due to snow. Was able to go up to the switch backs (2.7 mi from parking lot and 10,000 ft altitude), but had to turn back due to 130 cm deep snow. Knee-high gaiters, hiking sticks, and snow shoes a must.

hiked this trail a bunch. like it a lot. not too hard. tried to go up during a good snow event but they closed it.

Completed in January when trail was icy and without spikes. Very sketchy but I finished it..... sliding on my butt on a couple occasions. So worth it though! Views were aaamazing! #whyihike

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.

The drive to the trailhead is gorgeous. I only completed a portion of the trail because I arrived so late but it was windy, with wildlife all around, and beautiful views of the coast.

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

12/23/18- amazing views and no snow or ice on the stairs.

12/22/18 Beautiful views and wonderful weather. There's snow on the trail but not enough for snowshoes. I had yaktraks for the way down but others in the group didn't and handled the hike just fine with they're hiking shoes.

Just a little strenuous and good views. Usually not too crowded.

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

What a view once you get to the top! clear trail.

Little Baldy sign on the left side of the road. Trail is on the right where you pull over to park!

10/10. Short enough trail, but gives you everything you want out of it. Enough incline to get some exercise. 2-3 switchbacks but the trail is pretty views the whole time. There is a flat bit and since I was the only person I saw on the trail (mid-Nov) it was very peaceful! Views at the top are insane.... worth every second. Careful with your photo ops, the gravel can shift and I almost took a tumble off the cliff at one point.... oops. It was a hazy/Smokey day but I’ll definitely be coming back!

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 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.

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.
