Created in 1890, Sequoia National Park is home to the largest trees on earth and the tallest peak in the contiguous United States. At 404,063 acres and over 90% of designated wilderness, Sequoia offers over 800 miles of hiking trails. This park protects the Giant Forest, which has the world's largest tree, General Sherman, as well as four of the next nine tallest. It also has over 240 caves, the tallest mountain in the lower 48, Mount Whitney, and the granite dome Moro Rock.

Not sure bout the easy part, at least not for us. And the 3.7 miles? ha! 2.38 from the parking lot to the falls. The hike was really nice and very scenic. We'd definitely do it again!

100% worth it. The railings look like they wouldn't even try to catch you if you fell, but don't let that scare you. You're on top of the world.

You'll see tons of huge sequoias while you walk on this shaded path. There are even a few sequoias you get to walk through! Very quiet trail since everyone is back at General Sherman.

General Sherman is a must see. There's a free shuttle if you don't want to walk back up to the parking lot.

The meadow is full of flowers in July. Lovely loop with lots of information along the way. A little more crowded than other hikes in the park.

Beautiful meadow full of flowers in July. Went at dusk and saw two bears! I could've stayed here forever.

My favorite trail up there, diverse scenery
