Loved this hike. I took the advice from another review to go counter-clockwise, and I am so happy we did! Some of the uphill was pretty steep, especially carrying our two babies, so I am glad we didn’t hit that going the opposite direction. It’s a good idea to have the trail map downloaded because it could be easy to take a wrong turn. It took us about 3 hours.

Beautiful trail. Be sure to download a map to keep you on track. Lots of horses roaming around which was cool to see The life lock feature unfortunately sent an alert to our family only ten minutes into the trail saying we didn’t complete on time and were late. Great trail

Lovely stroll!

Did this last August. Spectacular. Two passes at 11,500 feet is a real test. Beautiful scenery, few other people. Do it!

The General Sherman Tree is the largest tree in the world by volume! A must-see. It is definitely a tourist attraction so expect a crowd but if you are after more solitude, access to the Congress trail is available very close by so you can get up close and personal with some more giants! There is free parking and flush restrooms at the main trail head (follow road signs for Wolverton/General Sherman), handicap accessible parking and pit toilets are available at the lower trail head which becomes the main parking area in the winter. The Sequoia Shuttle bus stops at both locations. The main trail starts at about 7000' elevation and is paved with a few short sets of stairs. You will begin the trek outside of the Giant Forest grove but as you descend you will start to see the beautiful cinnamon color of the Giant Sequoias begin to appear. Your first attraction will be a view point where you can get a picture of the entire General Sherman tree (since the tree is so large there are not many places to get a photo of the whole thing!), there are benches and an interpretive sign at this view point. As you continue walking you will come to a trail convergence, turn Right to visit General Sherman, turn Left to enter the Congress trail (clearly marked with signs and a map kiosk). When you arrive at the base of General Sherman there will likely be a line of people waiting for their photo in front of it. There is a fence around the tree to protect it's delicate root system and benches available. As you continue walking you will see some awesome features such as a massive fallen Sequoia that the trail goes through, a fantastic cut cross-section of another Giant and two "twin trees" that the trail goes between. Giant Sequoias are truly awe inspiring and General Sherman is the largest of them all! There are so many other hidden secrets along this trail - you would like your own private guide visit www.sequoiaguides.com.

This trail offers something for everyone. Some moderate hikes and many flat places. Lovely views of mountains; wild turkeys and other birds were the only wildlife seen.

Another great lap!

Very rewarding hike loop. Had some slip ups and wet feet. But can’t cry over wet shoes. Definitely bring hiking poles if you’re not used to this steep of a climb.

Super icy and foggy so couldn’t see anything!

Road was closed so we had to walk from the visitors center. Stairs at Morro Rock were very icy and there was a lot of fog so we couldn’t really see anything. Still very pretty!

Awesome views!!! As the first review mentions, it is a bit of scramble once you get past Pear Lake. There isn't a trail, you just have to keep climbing. It will feel as though it never ends, but just when you think you are over it, you'll hit the top and see Moose Lake! We didn't see another soul out there, which was pretty cool. :)

Great little loop to keep you in shape for the bigger days. Snow wasn’t half bad near the peak.

I would park in the lot across the campground and walk to through the campground, the trail is on the left, although there are a couple parking spots right at the trail start. Rocky trail, appx 4 miles up and ends at the beautiful fall.

Would definitely recommend this hike, completed it in around 3hours at the beginning of Jan, there were no need for any shoe spikes or poles. Mostly dirt path with a few steep bits but otherwise very solid underfoot and an easy to moderate hike. Would definitely recommend as the waterfalls were in full flow and looked beautiful.

We loved this hike so much! Trail was of course closed for winter, but snowshoers & skiers who’d come before us laid out a great trail for our crampons (we decided it was too shallow for snowshoes), and we handled the trail fine. Had a wonderful run in with a black bear that was walking the trail with us for about .3mi! Moro Rock’s summit was VERY icy and snowy, and without ice rated crampons I would STRONGLY recommend not attempting the summit. Low handrails (when there are handrails) along with the stairs become ice “slides” made this part very dangerous, even with the correct equipment. It was mostly safe to the halfway point on the actual rock. Will 100% do this hike again the next time we come through Sequoia!

We snowshoed to the hut for New year day and spent the night there. very beautiful hike! The weather was great, sunny and almost warmish. It had not snow for a week or so, thus the path was very clear and easy to follow. the map is slightly wrong, the winter path does not pass between the two lakes but loop way norther. Snow was quite packed in the bottom and become slightly softer at the top, but overall easy to manage. we left at 11 and it took us roughly 4 hours to get to the hut (with a couple of stops for a quick snack and water). conditions clearly made the hike faster, with soft snow, it can take easily the double. Night at the hut was great!

Great trail . One of the vest I’ve seen . Did not make it to the top but I’ll be back .
