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.

Enjoyed the trees. Fun walking through the fallen tree. Gives you a real appreciation as to their size.

Easy and educational.

Perhaps more fascinating than the General Grant, the second largest tree in the world (the a General Sherman is the first) is the hollowed out, downed redwood you can walk through which gives you a little perspective as the the size of these trees.

Short hike, amazing views. Be sure to read the signs as you go, the history is quite interesting.

If your looking for the "peaceful walk in the woods" this is your hike over the "Giant Forest in Seq. Nat. Park. Granted we got here later in the evening, but there was no more than 10 cars in the lot. But you can walk on dirt here, you feel like your in the wood!

Beautiful hike

Good intro to Sequoias if you start on the Kings Canyon side of the park. Do this before you to General Sherman so you save the largest for last.

Easy short loop with tall trees. Parking lot isn't very large and gets crowded in the summer.

Easy trail with giant trees that make you feel like your an ant compared to them. Great scenic hike.

This is a great trail. My 4yo loved climbing through the fallen trees. So did I. Felt like a giant squirrel.

This was the first hike I took with my young family now we are veterans but I remember this one well hiking with my daughter on my shoulders and son leading the way with friends❤️❤️

We took our kids to go see the giant redwoods in mid-November. My 6 year old, developmentally disabled son was able to make the loop twice with no problems. The area is beautiful and the enormity of the trees is humbling. There was a fallen tree that you can walk through. My kids loved this. The trail itself was well maintained and fenced in so there is essentially no risk of a kid wandering off the trail and getting lost. We loved it.

I love this area! Many great memories of the big trees from my childhood... Fun in every season.

Very easy. Crowded, but a nice simple walk with great views of trees.

Nice short hike up to, and around General Grant Tree. There is also a cool, old cabin and a hollowed out fallen sequoia tree which was used by early settlers in the area.

I have taken my kids to this past 2 years. I plan on going every year. These sequoia trees amaze me every time. I like going during fall and winter. Less people/tourists I mean. Plus every time we get to see mother bears and her cubs. I am able to show my children how to give nature space, respect and observe beauty from a safe distance.
