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.

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.

Great. Super mit Kindern, früh am Morgen ist man fast allein.... mit einigen Tieren. Unbedingt gesamten Loop gehen.

A stress-free saunter. This trail is primarily paved and doesn't take a ton of effort. You're rewarded with magnificent up close looks at giant sequoias. As other reviews have stated, the size of some of these trees rival that of General Sherman yet the trail itself is typically sparsely populated in comparison to the permanently crowded scene in front of The General.

I loved this trail. It was only about a 2 mile trail and it took us about 1.5 hours to complete with a few stops. We loved it!

Few people take the whole trail!

This trail is perfect Sequoia National Park and is a must-do. You will walk right next to GROUPS of Sequoias almost as big as the General Sherman Tree. I was amazed at the lack of people on this trail when compared to the enormous crowds just a couple hundred yards away. We were not alone, but there were literally hundreds of people at the General Sherman Tree and we bumped into maybe 20 people total on this trail.
