This popular trail begins at the General Sherman Tree and takes you into the heart of the Giant Forest. It is also a pleasant snow-shoe in the winter months.

Much better than General Sherman Trail. Hike itself was 4 stars but the 5th comes from finding a trails right behind the Senate group (doesn't show on maps here) that connected to other trails ultimately. Saw less than a dozen people over 3 hours and had the giant trees pretty much all to myself and all within yards of the "rat race".

The president tree is pretty cool, but I really enjoy the senate trees grouped together, it really gives the feeling of being in the forest.

The trail is mostly paved. Alot of tourists on this popular trail. It is next to the famous Sherman Tree.

Easy stroll. Cool seeing all the big sequoias. I was a little disappointed as I was expecting super ginormous trees with all the hype.
