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.

It is a great trail for kids.. Just make sure you have plenty of water and snacks depending on how old your kids are.. I definitely recommend a water filter kit as there are 3 creeks along the trail.. Didn't have one but luckily brought enough water with us

I did this trail as part of a 45 mile backpacking loop. It's great! Here is the trip report: https://backpackersreview.wordpress.com/trip-reports/sequoia-national-park-sawtooth-pass-and-high-sierra-trail/

Beautiful hike w constant views. Lots of wildlife on the trail. We stayed on trail the entire time, but the hike to Eagle Lake and back ended up being about 8 miles long.

Great hike! Long enough to feel accomplished at the end, but easy enough to bring kids. Right now, with all the water, it is beautiful the entire way to the falls. Parking lot parking in Lodgepole and a general store and hot food for after!

Very beautiful and highly recommend! there's not much shade at the waterfall so make sure you take a hat, sunglasses and sunblock. Go and enjoy the Glory of God!

Even though it's short, the trail is mostly made of steps and quite narrow, requiring coordination with the people coming down to pass by one another. The journey to the top was incredibly rewarding and allows a stunning view of the entire park. Additionally, there is the added enjoyment of a shared group experience with everyone else who made it to the top.

Surprisingly scenic trail, crossing streams and fern-covered meadows on the way to a grove of magnificent Sequoias.

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!
