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.

I did this hike back in september 2016 with a group of 6. we caught some trout in little five, hiked down to pinto lake to campfire cook them, then finished off the loop through timber gap. Counterclockwise was worth the pain of going up and over Sawtooth. 4 days total, with drive up and back from Los Angeles.

A short and sweet hike up to Weaver Lake. The Lake has a lot of "sites" with already made fire rings for safe and easy fire use (with a permit, of course!) Right now there is still some snow so the trail can be difficult to stay on for a novice hiker. There are tree blazes so watch out for those of the trail is covered. The only reason this didn't get 5 stars is because the hike is nothing too spectacular, but the Lake is amazing.

I may be a little biased because I patrol this area, but this hike is beautiful, can be challenging, and is sure to give some amazing views. Right now there is tons of snow and the creeks are nearly raging rivers. However, this trail (versus the whole loop) is the best access point to Jennie Lake!

We only made it to Mehrten Meadow, but this trail is gorgeous! The Giant Forest was very peaceful with water running everywhere until you reach Panther Gap. There were patches of snow, but nothing too difficult to manage. The views from Panther Gap and beyond are breath taking. Mehrten Meadow was a great place to make camp to avoid the sweltering heat. It appears you'll still need snow gear to reach anything past Mehrten Meadow. I look forward to completing this trail later this year.

Don't miss this if you go to Moro Rock. Not the same drama as Moro but hardly anyone there. Great spot for picnic lunch!!

Incredible vistas! Can get a bit crowded on narrow steps...but well worth it.

Easy and adds valuable info to your appreciation of the amazing Sequoia trees!!!

Easy trail...beautiful at sunset!

This was a short hike, however it is an uphill battle. Trail offers very little protection from falling off the side of the granite mountain of a rock. If you're afraid of heights this may not be the hike for you. At times we had to stop when there was space to let others pass that were coming down as we were going up. However it was an incredibly beautiful view at the top. My 68yr old dad did the hike with me and he did just fine. Take your time, take breaks and drink water. The view is worth it!

This is a really nice trail. I went the beginning of June, the current of the waterfall and river were very strong. We started our hike around 10:30am and saw only a few people headed to the falls and some people returning. You start off hiking along the river and for the most part you get a good view of river. The scenery is amazing. The very last part of the trail (0.2 mile) gets a little rocky. This trail is rated "easy", unfortunately, I ended up getting altitude sickness which made the hike very difficult for me. I was able to make it to the waterfall where we took a long break and had lunch. There was a lot of other people there enjoying the view and having lunch. Beware of the rodents! They are very cute. They come out of the rocks crevices and want to steal your food. On the way back from the falls we passed by a lot of other people headed to the waterfalls, so start early to avoid crowds. We didn't see any bears or deers.

Worth the 400 steps! Amazing views!

We were in awww of his beauty! Nature at its finest!
