Take the Grove Overlook Trail as well. Worth it to see the view of the trees from a higher viewpoint!

We only GPS mapped the Canyon River Trail for one way. It was closer to 6.6 miles roundtrip than the advertised 8 miles. Moderate difficulty, reasonably well-maintained, well marked with appealing aesthetics (creek, river, forest, greenery, nicely shaded). Approx. 1300 foot elevation climb back up the ridge from the river. Have fun & don't forget to pack out your trash. We saw a lot of garbage on the trail and tried to pick up as much as we could find. Please be respectful to this beautiful forest. Thank you!!!

We visited New Year's Day, 2017. The snow was beautiful and added something special to the walk. This was my first hike as an adult. Now, I have this need to see more!

This is a great hike for families, and for individuals of all ages and abilities. If you are looking for a trail to get started with, if you want to get your kids interested in hiking, this is a great place to go. The path is well maintained, and is a boardwalk for much of the trail, so there is no tricky terrain. Great place to just let the kids run and enjoy the beauty all around. We completed this trail in about an hour.

If you are looking for a challenging trail, this is not for you. Great place to get kids motivated to do harder trails in more remote corners of the Sierras though.

Super easy but great for little ones. More of a walk than a hike. Lots of places to stop along the way for a picnic under the majestic sequoias.
