Trail is chock full of tourists but it is well worth the short walk to see the largest tree in the world at 275 ft tall and 36 ft in diameter

Easy access, maybe too easy. It attracts large crowds by late morning. I used it as a staging ground for a 9 mile day hike. Get there by 9am and you will be mostly alone.

The General Sherman tree itself is amazing. Worth seeing. Low star count because it is a very crowded (no surprise) paved trail which takes away from the sanctity of the tree itself.

Easy hike, we did it with 2 kids. They enjoyed it. We saw some deer, and enjoyed a world legend in General Sherman. Definitely worth the length and the easiness. Would definitely recommend
