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.
We really enjoyed this trail. The river was beautiful. The lady bugs were fun. We caught a glimpse of the red salamanders. My only complaint about this trail was the accessibility to the trail head. After a winter of heavy rain the dirt road that takes you to trail head was in rough shape.

Been to this location year round spring ,summer ,fall, winter . best time ever is probably during spring when everything is in bloom waters are flowing Be careful !!!though the water is extra frigid would no recommend anyone swimming in there at that time. summer time go for it best place to take the kids to go tubing and spending a lazy afternoon.
I took my 7 year old daughters on this hike. I wouldn't call this "easy".. it could because of the level of the river this year, but I was a little anxious and turned back sooner than I might have otherwise. The trail gets lost on some rather rocky areas you have to navigate. A lot of the rock is shale (I think?) that breaks easy and slides around. It was beautiful and we had a great time, I just feel the classification is "easy" is quite misleading.
