Don't use this trail if you just want to see the Big Tree...

The name is misleading. There are easier ways to get to the big tree and if you follow the app, you will pass it (the app takes you about two miles past the tree, the trail forks at 204- if you follow the app, it'll take you left, but you need to go right to find the tree). The first several miles are horse trails, and not very scenic- fine if you just want the exercise, but after talking to locals, there are better ways to get to the tree.
