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 hiked this trail on a Sunday- it is well established, and is moderate in difficulty. We did it with our 10mo old in a pack and up and back took about 4.5 hours with stopping at the falls.

Did this April 23. Plenty of snow, but it was compact. Did fine with just hiking boots. Hard to see the trail most of the time because of the snow, but there are red markers on the trees to help guide you. Good hike!

This is a beautiful cave. We took the whole family 2 years ago. The hike down and out of the cave mouth is not long but it is strenuous. So be prepared with water.

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.

great views! still very snow covered on apr23.

Killer!

I've done this one in the spring, summer, fall, and snowshoed it in the winter. gorgeous view!

amazing hike! altitude did get to my wife and myself a Lil but not too bad. Bring water! we started at 7 and we were back at the car around 4.

Absolutely breath taking when you get there. we started at lodgepole. the first stretch was quite a climb up. we ended going up to the pass just past the lakes and it was beautiful up there. highly suggest that if you have the energy

definitely better trails out there. I went in April and almost got snagged up by a rattle snake 6 miles in. keep an eye out!

great Lil tourist spot

definitely not the best hike but not bad for not driving all the way up
