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.

This trail was very easy and fun to explore!

it's alright for those who are sight-seeing. it's become far too much of a tourist trap though - get there early to avoid crowds

Perfect time of year to be on this trail. I took it to Panther Creek and camped there on a Saturday night. Lots of spots to tarp/tent or hang. Excellent weather(70/40) with nice snowy views to the east. Water was plentiful, but none of the creek crossings to that point had any deep water. The road to the trailhead/Buckeye Flat campground is closed at this point for the winter but do not let that stop you from jumping on this awesome trail. You’ll need to park at the picnic area on Sherman’s Highway at the intersection of Buckeye Flat. It tacks on an additional two miles but was along the river and I encountered many mule deer along the way. When the road forks, go left on the rough road. The gate on the right goes to Buckeye Flat campground and Paradise trail. Happy hiking!

Hiked a few miles but didn’t complete. Planning on overnight camping to Crescent Meadows.

A sequoia grove Muir would be proud of. Special place.

First time hike. It’s really steep but so worth it. There are pit stops so you can regain your breath. It’s pretty view of the mountains. Would love to go again

Awesome place to go. Views are beautiful and road in has alot of places to stop and walk around. I've seen marmonts there at times. probably should have a truck or something with some ground clearance, trail can get a little rough at times.

Great view and intriguing trail!

one of the best views of the different colors over the sky. i was able to see some very distinct shade of blue, navy amd even green. The sunset was purely breathtaking and we just sat there in peace and in awe of nature's beauty

I went on Saturday and I’m a total beginner haha It was super cloudy/foggy and a bit steep for me since just starting out but was super cool to climb. beautiful and a bit spooky due to weather- loved it!

Went on a whim driving through. Very good hike to a very nice view. Has a marker on top stating the altitude. kinda cool.

Good hike. Not too steep, not too many people. I would suggest you go when it's cold due to ticks. Watch out for newts.

A good winter hike. Too hot in the summer. Lower part has alot of brush, but gets good towards the top. Nice hike.

Hiked 1/7/18 and went to the 7 tea cups and back, which I am guessing was about 4 miles round trip.

Would not categorize this as easy because although there are amazing views and is fairly flat, the terrain is so rocky and uneven on most of the trail.

With that said, I would not recommend this trail for younger children due to the terrain. We took our 8 year old daughter and there was some stumbles.

Ending at 7 tea cups was a nice, well known swim spot for the summer but we also learned it is very crowded at that time. Plan to go back in late summer to hopefully enjoy the water and skip the crowds!

Crowded trail that leads straight down, and then back up. Worth seeing General Sherman, but a lot of hassel. We took the the Congress Trail from the bottom of the General Sherman Trail. That was very cool!


Day hiked this trail for half a day and it was amazing. Hope to come back and backpack it some day.

Beautiful sequoia trees to be seen here. Heavy traffic though.

Fun trail up and down. Better when there are less people. It tends to get crowded and the path is narrow. My wife and I went recently and it was misty and cold but still a great, short hike.
