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.

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!
