This made for a great family trip. We spent most of a day in the park driving through the trees, stopping at lookout points, having a snowball fight (we found a patch of snow), and hiking. We did this hike with a 7 and 9 year old and had no problems. It was fun for the whole family.

3rd biggest tree by volume and largest Sequoia trunk by diameter. Good enough for me!

Easy trail for kids. We went in the late afternoon; not many other people on the trail and the trees were stunning in the afternoon light.

These trees are so incredibly majestic. I appreciate that the park service has made the trails to these monuments accessible to all. There is no reason to not do this trail while in the area.

Nothing spectacular. Easy walk. paved. Easily accessible. Great for someone who doesn't want to go off trail or has little ones.

there's a larger series of trails in here besides this paved section- we got out early and hiked all around, beautiful to do in the morning when there's no one else there! Lots of beautiful trees besides General Grant, get out on the non-paved trails to see them!

Nicely paved and handicap accessible, not that my family needed that, but it’s fenced in both sides and easy for kids as young as 2 to navigate and explore without needing to stay on top of them. We used this as our warm up walk to stretch our legs from the drive in and tucker the little ones out so we could backpack them on our more ambitious trails later.

Nice little hike. Super busy but for a quick look at the great trees it is well worth it.

Scenic walk with lots of wonderful things to see. The path is paved all the way up to General Grant from the parking lot.

Easy trail as an intro to SEKI from the Fresno side. Trail is paved. Handful of loops to explore for a short, easy walk.

I've walked this short loop many times. Lots to see along the way other than the General Grant tree. It's an easy walk, and yes, there is always a crowd.

Great sequoia grove. Easy loop that takes about 30 minutes.
