It was great! Not many people on this trail. There was a lot of horse poop along the trail; watch your step! Other than that, peaceful, nice breeze, great hike! I started recording the trail a little late into the hike, but it is a loop.

Serene. The best part was the added “Dead Tree” loop, which has a makeshift trail to an overlook of a lake. You pass a lot of burned trees from fire, but we didn’t mind since we got our fill of sequoias the day before. A lot of horse poop, which we also didn’t mind. We barely saw anyone else... totally peaceful.

This a horse trail. It's wide, it has lots of horse poop, and it is dusty. Although you do see a few Sequoia, most of the regular forest trees throughout the middle of the trail have been burnt. So, you're looking black steeples of dead trees. The view is not very far out. There wasn't anyone on this trail, so it was a good place to hike while the crowds died down at the famous General Grant loop from the same parking lot.

This is an upside down hike, lots of down then hike back up. You lose the crowds on Grant’s loop but see equally magnificent old growth sequoias. As the trail name suggested, we went at sunset and the evening light in the high branches of these giants is magical.

Lots of big trees! Pretty good trail for most part but a lot up hill. Wouldn’t have called it easy since I’m not a hiker. Beautiful area.

Easy hike just off of the Grant Grove parking lot. Sequoias everywhere! Not a sole on the trail outside of our family.
