This is a short but heavily trafficked trail in Sequoia NP. It’s a paved path that’s great for handicap, kids, and walkers. At the half way point, you’ll reach the General Grant Tree. It’s beautiful but very busy! You can also connect to this trail from other trails in the park. We connected from the Rimrock Trail. Worth a stop if you’re in Sequoia NP!

Right off we see a large bear with a deer going the opposite direction. Some insects, easy short walk.

This hike was really fun, but definitely a challenge! You're quickly rewarded with the cascades at the very beginning and then it's a long way to the top! The streams and change of terrain along the way make the hike interesting. Ran into some gnats in some parts of the trail. I did not go all they way up to the lookout, but did make it to the summit meadow. The trail to the lookout is really non-existent once you get to that point. I definitely want to do the hike again, but start a bit earlier to leave plenty of time to enjoy the top. (I started the hike at noon and reached the bottom at 4:30.) It is really neat to think of the history of this particular path into the canyon while hiking along!

Beautiful trail in the gorge by the river. No wildlife sitings, but fun nonetheless!

You are ascending the whole way up. Make sure to save energy to make it up to the look out, difficult to fin the trail when you reach the top.

This was so much better than the last time I was here. As we were coming out of the park after hiking in the valley, we decided to stop and hike around General Grant. We just started walking around the giant trees and to our surprise there wasn’t many people around which was awesome. The crews at this park are actually getting it ready for winter already in the middle of September. As these gentle giants rising up into the sky they were just awesome.

Loved our hike! Perfect temperature and not too busy. Clearly marked and very easy hike. Huge issue with mosquitoes and flies at the trailhead and continued along the hike

Magical walk on paved trail through a magnificent grove of Sequoia trees. Not nearly as crowded or noisy as the General Sherman tree walkway, and I thought the General Grant was more majestic! Do not pass this by if you enter through the north entrance of the park- it’s right there!

Way back and nearly forgotten.... Awesome sight when I was young.

Great short hike. Little elevation. Saw three rattle snakes by the boardwalk in Zumwalt Meadows.

Roaring River Falls in Late August does not have a lot of water but still pretty during Golden hour.

My star rating is based on the expectation for a nice hiking trail. This is a wide fire road that is used by off highway vehicles. So everything is a bit dusty, and we didn't see any other hikers but several 4w drive vehicles and quads passing us, and some that were not considerate enough to slow down. A good portion is through area that was hit by fire so there is not much shade as the taller trees are ghostly charred sticks but nice green growth around them. But it was a bit too warm for us, Labor Day '18. If you're into ATVing seems like a fun trail, hiking, not so much.

The trail is steep, but paved the whole way. Not difficult at all. The 4 year old made it no problem. Totally worth the time to go to both gorgeous viewpoints! Remember the bug spray (end of July).

More of a steep stroll than a hike, but definitely worth the time! Gorgeous views of giant trees! Easily doable with a stroller.

Very easy and beautiful hike! Great views from the meadows up at the canyon. I hiked in the meadow and did some scrambling on the big rocks above the river. Would definitely go back again!

we enjoyed our leisure trip. the trees were massive and the docent was great!

This place is beautiful and peaceful! It starts off at a waterfall. Looks a little to dangerous to get in. There are lots of nats and mosquitos since you’re walking along a pretty little river but, my bug spray from Walmart worked just fine. I fell in love with the meadow , there’s a wood walkway that takes you through it. We recorded 6.8 miles because we walked the whole thing and went around a extra loop at the end(by accident). My son is 9, it was his first hike and he did very well! This place is definitely a must see. (Also someone stole my go-pro from the bridge please return it

Nice hike with kids. A bit trafficked but manageable.

Such a beautiful hike surrounded by towering granite walls and the sound of the river accompanying us along the way. Very easy walk although we recorded 4.9 miles and 387 ft of elevation. A minor negative were the gnats that seemed immune to bug spray. Highly recommend this hike that all fitness levels can enjoy. 8/4/2018

So easy and so spectacular! Wildlife is very present here so be careful. Definitely a must see when the sun is rising or setting though.

A little more strenuous than I planned on, but beautiful hike. Cool trees and some interesting burn damage.

This made for a great family trip. We spent most of a day in the park driving through the trees, stopping at lookout points, having a snowball fight (we found a patch of snow), and hiking. We did this hike with a 7 and 9 year old and had no problems. It was fun for the whole family.

3rd biggest tree by volume and largest Sequoia trunk by diameter. Good enough for me!

Beautiful! Great trail for the kids!

Easy trail for kids. We went in the late afternoon; not many other people on the trail and the trees were stunning in the afternoon light.
