High traffic area. Short trail to a close up encounter with some of the Giant Sequoias and a close up view of The General Sherman.

Very crowded at the time we hiked. Would prefer to hike early morning or later when the crowds have left.

Super duper easy and accessible to just about everyone. It's paved, it descends slightly, and there's a humongous tree waiting for you at the end.

We hiked the Congress Trail and then met up with the Sherman Tree Trail. The Sherman Tree Trail is beautiful and you don't get the perspective of how large these trees really are until right up next to it. The trail loops through "meadows of trees". It was great! Wear good supportive shoes.
