Super easy loop to walk through and see some stunning trees. Crazy to walk through a fallen sequoia. Definitely something to see

Amazing view of some incredible redwood trees. Informative signs throughout the cute loop around it. Plenty of snow today off the trail (March 18) but trail was clean and easy. Quick and worth stop

The view is nice and extensive! The gate is currently closed, so one has to walk the road up to the panoramic point. There still are a couple of patches of snow but nothing terrible, usual closed shoes would do. Took us 1:50 to go up, enjoy the view, and back. Enjoyed it!

Nice secluded trail and lake at Lake Hume. Can walk around to Christian camp and get ice cream.

Its a peaceful short trail that i believe can be done by anyone. i was having troubles with my signal so the recording is a little glitchy. if there is snow when you go it may be a little difficult to keep track of the trail.

The road that leads you out here is closed in winter so we were not able to make it to the trailhead during February.

This isn’t my favorite hike style. This is a loop that descends before it ascends. It was very pretty on a warming winter day. Some ice and snow on the trail but snowshoes or crampons were not necessary. And definitely not enough snow to ski. Very similar to Tuolumne Grove Trail in Yosemite. But with less people!

Oh my! No people at all mid week in February! Paved trail with some snow and ice patches. Very kid friendly. We also saw does.

This is a great beginning snowshoe! But the winter miles are far different from the summer. In the winter you will need to snowshoe the road so it will be about 5.5 miles not .5 miles and a bit more elevation gain. It’s worth it. The views are great!

This was an amazing view!! Quite a different view of Sequoia and such an appreciation of Kings Canyon. This little trail up to Grizzley falls is rocky, but kid- friendly. Went in the summer and it's a perfect spot to get freshened up!!

Easy walk.

3/5 stars just because this trail felt like the same, but less magnificent than an average hike in Sequoia Ntl Park (that we hiked in the same morning). The trail was REALLY well maintained by previous snowshoers & skiers. Kings Canyon Ntl Park’s official “winter hiking trails” map ($1.99) was 100% useless in that it didn’t accurately represent -!) of the winter trails - this was supposed to be the winter version of the “General Grant Trail”. Ask a Ranger in the Azalea campground/General Grant parking lot & they’ll give you an excellent breakdown of signage to follow to stay on the trail in the winter conditions. We needed to use our snowshoes for this hike, our crampons didn’t provide enough flotation!

short walk to a cool waterfall. worth checking it out.

Great views. Easy trail but this might be your first trail after driving up from the valley since it's close to Grants Grove lodge. In other words, you might not be acclimated to the elevation. My friend and I went up there and he was having some issues with breathing and I noticed I was it was harder than normal. That's when I realized the altitude sickness. In any case, just be aware. Good thing it is an easy hike. The drive up is more challenging (from the valley and from the lodge). The road from the lodge is one lane, period. Both directions share one lane, so you might have to pull to the side is someone is going the other way.

The ranger called this "a hands on, interactive, interpretive trail." Perfect discription, it was great for all ages! It's one of the lesser known trails, because it hasn't been over run.lt offers great panoramic views of the meadows and opportunity for perspective. I imagine at some point the wildlife thrives on this area, but we didn't see any.

Go between 7-8am to avoid the crowds.The first tourist bus pulled in as we were leaving. Peaceful and quiet. It's a paved path, but does allow for some real trail hiking. The cabin is cool and walking through the living tree was also neat for our children.
