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.

Peaceful place. Had fun playing on Thorp's log in the middle of the meadow

Great trail on a beautiful ridge. A couple awesome vistas. About 20% shade.

Is easy to moderate. Very rocky trail. Need good balance and boots.

Fun and crowded :)

Nice hike through varied terrain up to the falls. A couple of bear-spottings by others coming back down, but we didn't see any. Nice view of the Watchtower from below.

Fun little diversion for an hour. You drive to a parking lot below the rock. Popular and a bit crowded when we were there around 10am on a weekday. Fun climb to the top with nice views. Check out the "Hanging Rock" trail a little bit up the road; you'll get a nice view of Moro Rock from a distance with all the people on top. Do it so you could say you did it.

Thoroughly exhausting and thoroughly exhilarating! Four of us spent two nights at Emerald Lake below Pear - we all thought the sites there were nicer. Plenty of mosquitos. Another mile to Pear for a day hike. Highly recommended: add another mile with an excursion down the Pear Lake drainage, past the Ranger hut to view the Marble Fork of the Kaweah River rushing down the granite slopes on the way to the canyon below. Stunning! Then bushwhack back up to the main trail. No campfires at Emerald or Pear, but bear boxes and vault toilets (yay!) at both.

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.
