This trail runs north along the highway from the Giant Forest Museum. It then takes you across the highway and loops around a meadow with Sequoia trees along the perimeter. Easy for kids. Flat and paved. Bathrooms at loop and museum.

A short, easy walk with enormous, giant sequoia trees. One horizontal sequoia the agile adult in me even climbed through. Though trying to park in the nearest lot can be an impossible task during busy times (summer weekends + holidays), the city of Visalia has buses running throughout each parking lot/campsite, just in case they are extremely busy...but be prepared to wait. We lucked out and drove up from another hike later in the day (6pm Saturday 9/3/16), and were able to park in the lot across from the Giant Forest museum. Though not quite as tall as redwoods, these massive giants are officially the "biggest" trees in the world, just not the tallest. This is a must see and hence what this park is named after.
