This trail is good for beginners I went up in the rain if it were dry could have done it all in 2wd deep washouts and mud made it challenging without a 2nd vehicle

I did this hike in early July 2017, it is by far one of the most beautiful hikes I've been on. The rock faces, wildlife and trees made this a hike to remember. I made a 3 day trip from Sequoia and Crecent Meadows up to Hamilton lakes and Elizabeth pass and back. It was an easy day hike to reach Hamilton lakes where snow was still present in July. A clearly marked trail but the rocks made my decision to wear trail runners questionable. Hiking boots would be my recommendation for the last half of this trail. I spent the night at Hamilton lakes, plenty of wildlife up there, I hung out with a young buck for the evening. I guess I pitched my tent near his hangout. Day 2 I hiked Elizabeth pass was still covered in snow and I'm glad I have crampons to get up there. I made my way back to Bear Creek for the 2nd night of camping and finished early afternoon back at Crescent Meadows. 200% hike this trail.

Biggest tree is pretty cool it is massive. Did a loop trail attached to this trail that wasn't as crowded and very nice. Amazing how many partially burnt trees keep on going like it's nothing. Busy and not the most amazing views(not much variety)

Not sure it warrants moderate, it's like going up a couple flights of stairs. very short. Great views great view of the Sierra's, the mountains are calling.

Definitely a wonderful landmark to see. It’s not really a hike, just a paved walk to get there. Honestly though, it looks exactly like all the other redwoods. I would have thought it was going to be much bigger than them. I personally felt the tree in front of the redwood museum was more fun to take pictures with and of. It was snowing when we were there, and the trails were all ice so that put a damper in getting to any actual hiking.

I actually completed this one in October. It’s beautiful. I took a short 15 nap when I summited and the view was amazing with the two lakes below. Definitely will do it again and take a longer nap lol

Short and fun trail with an awesome view. The only bad thing is that it isn’t clearly marked.

Overall it was a fun day. Definitely a technical trail. As a beginner it pushed me to the limits of my knowledge and experience. Large washed out trenches throughout the trail and eventually impassable. We met hikers that told us it wouldn’t have mattered anyways since the trail leads into the park and the park gate is always locked. Allowed me to experience getting stuck and I stuck for myself without being in too much peril. Super scenic with a couple pull off-ish areas.

From reading the reviews, we knew this would be tough, but the route was still more technical than expected. We actually turned around prior to the park gate so did not even go 2 miles. Now, we are new to off roading so this trail might not be that hard for people with more experience. The views are great and this would be an easy hike.

Very nice hike! 2.5 hours, steady pace. Flat wide paths on the front half with nice sun and easy to follow trails on the back half, with more shade. Good for mountain bike and with dogs. Would defiantly do again.

Pretty cool to see the biggest tree in the World. Very easy- anyone can do it!

Beautiful trail with gorgeous views of the river and relaxing sounds from the flume that was nearly filled with water. Amazing!!! Will definitely be returning.

Loved this trail. Completed Jan 2018. Snow covered in areas and waterfall was frozen. Very beautiful and great views!

Short but keep ur heart rate up!!!

It was cool to see the biggest tree in the world, but it isn’t really a hike. It is sort of one of those things that you do to say that you have done it, but aren’t dying to do again. Would recommend going when it is not busy (early morning or offseason) so that it is easier to take pictures without worrying about other people being in it.

Really nice hike. Roads were closed due to snow when we visited so took the long way, but was worth it because of all the Mule deer that crossed the trail in front of us. Not recommended on a cloudy day, because then there is no view from the top.

It’s an easy hike/walk. So sad to see carved names in the wood. Please don’t do this.

The perfect walk to start your trip into the Sequoias. Within this hour you’ll learn everything you need to know to spot young or old sequoias, what type of environment is most suitable for growth, and a little history about the park. It’s perfect for all ages and super easy to complete.

first time up here, we took our quads. it's pretty good hidden place. first few miles are technical, you really need to pick your path. over all good place for a quick trip

Fell in love with the forest

I've done this trail several times, and I never get tired of it. It is one of my favorites!

It was definitely an easy hike. More like a stroll through a park. Hard to get that Wilderness feel, with hearing cars constantly. No wildlife.

Beautiful trail! A little crowded today and the trail was icy. Can’t wait to come back in the Spring! Happy New Year!

Beautiful! Completed Dec 30. Came accross some bear tracks - looked like a mama and at least 1 cub. The snow is packed in the lower portion, but gets powdery and deep as you approach the hump. If you're planning on going past the hump, bring snowshoes or xcountry skis. Crampons also helped with traction. Trail isn't always visible, so I'd recomend using an offline map and gps for nav. It's a fun trail, highly recommend.

The trail is easy to follow with an incline for the first 3 or so miles on a wide, clear path. There are beautiful scenes along the way including waterfalls and horses. The second half is confusing and hard to follow since the trail becomes narrow, there are no checkpoint signs, and there are many points where the trail splits into 2 or 3 different trails. The map IS NOT accurate in a critical area of the hike where the main trail is hard to distinguish from others. The grass is only matted down in some areas and it is hard to tell if it is the right path. I ended up getting lost a few times and walked a total of 8 miles for this 6.5 mile hike. There were times where I chose a path that led to a dead end or started to head in the wrong direction which forced me to do a lot of backtracking. It took me 2.5 hours to complete this trail with all the detours. I would advise starting early since it’s so easy to get lost or just hike the first 3 miles to the top and turn back around.
