Level was moderate instead of easy. It takes you to several other hiking paths very easily. A lot of shade versus direct sun. The sequoia trees are beautiful!

Beautiful trail through the Sequoia trees. The climb wasn't bad. You do have to climb under some big trees that fell on the trail.
Took my 4 & 10 year olds. They did great.

Wonderful trail! Much nicer than taking the shuttle to Moro Rock. A bit of a climb from the start (from the giant forest museum) but then it levels out nicely. Good chance to see bears and/or deer on this trail.

Nice easy trail with great views of the sequoias. Not very crowded.

It was enjoyable, about halfway down on our way back to the museum area - in the curve after auto's log - there was a freshly downed sequoia. I mean only a few days prior. The dirt by the root system was still moist and freshly turned, the bark was bright red, the branches had lush green leaves and the broken branches were still very wet with life.
It was obvious that I had just seen the death of a giant.
