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.

Great hike! Gorgeous falls! FYI not stroller/jogger friendly! We did spot a bear next to the trail

The trail is mostly paved. Alot of tourists on this popular trail. It is next to the famous Sherman Tree.

Completed Aug 2017. Whitney and Wright creek crossings dicey but everything else fab!

one of the best views iv ever seen!

This was a nice hike - did it in early June and was subdued by clouds/fog towards the end of the climb. No views at the summit, consequently, but bounding down the still-deep snow on the way down was good fun.

Easy trail in the woods. Pretty meadow. The fallen log was fun to walk on

Easy stroll. Cool seeing all the big sequoias. I was a little disappointed as I was expecting super ginormous trees with all the hype.

We took the Mt. Silliman trail up Silliman creek to get to Mt. Silliman. it was a decent hike until we hit the granite slabs. We had to switchback our way up several sections of granite slabs. 2000 ft. of mountain side to be exact. It was no easy feat.
At the top was Silliman Lake and it was beautiful and another 1000 ft of elevation gain will get you to the top of the mountain. Going down the mountainside could've been easily dangerous if you took things to fast. Very steep. After it's all said and done, I would not go back as the mountainside almost killed me.

Short hike up stairs with an awesome view! You can see for miles. Definitely recommend!

Beautiful hike. If you don't know your limits and you have the arrogance of two 23 year olds that are never going to die. I highly recommend trying to do the loop in less than 48 hours. But if not take the extra few days to really enjoy your surroundings. There are picturesque camp sites at big and little five lakes as well as at the head of lost canyon. We stayed at pinto lake and Columbine lake which were both great. Clockwise is the way to go. However, if you go up the front of sawtooth there is some terrible skree but in talking to a gentleman, he said that there is a better route from monarch if you can find it, but he said it took him years to find.

Loved the cave and tour guide. But of course with a tour, you have to deal with annoying people.

We took the road to the end in our Subaru, pretty meadows there if you can find them.

Easy hike from our campsite to a beautiful grove of sequoias we had pretty much to ourselves. A must do if staying at Dorst Creek, better than the Giant Forrest.

Like Alpine Lakes? My brother and I hiked this as a day hike, went past 4 different alpine lakes and was absolutely stunning. Not an easy climb, bring hiking poles if you want to save stamina. Defiantly doable with hiking poles for non-avid hikers.

Go via the watchtower if it's open, easier and better views
