Technically several trails done together. Make sure to start at Crescent Meadow and not General Sherman unless you want to end your day on 240ft incline. Other than that the trails passes the world's biggest field of poison oak for a bit so watch out on Trail of Seqiouas.

Amazing trail otherwise.

Great easy walk through incredible nature - I jumped on this track at the intersection of Congress Trail at the Chief Sequoya tree and followed the loop anti-clockwise all the way back. Easy grade with a couple of mild up-hill points. I had a lot of alone time on the trail but did run into a few other humans at either end. Saw woodpeckers, deer, chipmunks, and a marmot, in addition to stunning trees and some beautiful clearings.

Just did this whole loop this morning. Thanks to whoever put this one together. It's a stunning walk. The best part is the outer part once you get on the dirt trails and out through the meadows. 5 stars all the way.

Beautiful scenery, the giant sequoias are majestic and many trails to connect to create a longer hike if needed.

An amazing hike, just keep an eye open for the wildlife. Along the way I diverted onto the Bear Bathtub trail head about .4 miles in I came across a bear cub. After standing in awe of it all, I snapped back into reality and realized that the mother bear was some where around the area I was in. I quickly turned around and continued on my hike.
