You kinda have to go on this hike, because general sherman, but it’s not the best. It’s paved and steep, which is fine, but it’s crowded and there are people actually smoking, going off trail and generally just killing the vibe. We saw a bear, which I didn’t think I’d care about because they’re everywhere where we live, but then when I saw it I was all OMG THERE’S A BEAR!!! ❤️

Beautiful walking trail. Paved. We were remarking how there should be more paved trails as we started. Lots of big trees, a great little hike and easy. We went off trail and hiked up into the trees. Nice stream and very few people when we went, which was nice. The ‘the more you know’s’ posted around actually are very cool because who knew sequoias only needed 3 feet of soil to grow?

It was an interesting hike. you have to cross the river a few times. We didn't reach the end of the trail but on the way back we ran into a Momma bear and a baby bear. It was scary but cool at the same time. We went there mid October

Great walking path with beautiful trees, educational markers and path that is really doable for differently-abled people.

Always a favorite when in the Sequoia National Park! A beautifully maintained walkway down to the tree, with several sets of steps here and there. Go at your own pace, stop and enjoy the many benches along the way, and enjoy the beauty of the forest! Only downside are the crowds...we went Tuesday (Oct 8th) and was still pretty crowded, especially in the line for pictures...going back uphill is a workout, so just take your time, no rush!! The Sherman tree is very worth seeing, don’t miss it!

Was a little apprehensive to try this at first, as the knees like to complain on stairs, but once adrenaline kicked in, off I went. This was a wonderful, unique hike, and the views were spectacular!! People of all ages and sizes were going up, only a few turned back due to the steepness of stairs, but overall most made it. Afraid of heights? This might be your cure!! Go at your own pace, and take time to pause where there’s room, and take in the beautiful views. You will be glad you did this!! Can’t wait to go again next year!

Did this trail my with 5 year old son. Took us a second to find the trail head, but after that it was smooth sailing. We only saw about 5 people our entire hike and it ended up being a little over 7 miles round trip. It was a little uphill in the beginning, but overall pretty easy. My son was absolutely done at the end, but enjoyed the way up! We stopped at the lake and had lunch. Took us close to 2 and a half hours up and an hour and a half down.

We hiked this trail yesterday. Beautiful views for most of the trail, we got lucky and did get to see some color change in The Valley !! The trail gets very steep from the point where you see the sign to Eagle Lake. It does level out some and leads trough a beautiful forest....time to get some wind!! The hard part after the forest is the bolder field, takes a lot of energy to climb it at 9500 ft. The lake is beautiful, not many people up there. We rested for 30min before we went back down. The trail is not 6.5 miles but it’s 7.2 miles (sign by the forest service) we clocked more than 7.2 miles. The drive up to the hike is a challenge, narrow road that gets steep at times with MANY hairpin curves!!. Turns into a one lane road in serval spots. We made sure to come down that mountain before the sun went down. The hike took us 6hrs. We did stop a lot to catch our breath, we live at sea level

Went in the middle of October. Perfect weather. Little busy. Recommend going first thing in the morning. Also recommend parking at the giant museum and making the 1.5 mile hike to Moro Rock.

It was super easy to walk to. Not too busy in October and could enjoy the surroundings.

highly recommend this trail. first 4 miles steady incline then the area around the lakes the ups and downs are much smaller. view from the Watchtower is great and theres (compost) toilet up at the lakes. would call this moderate plus as opposed to hard

I thought this trail was overrated. First half very exposed, not much scenery throughout. Lots of bugs. Topokah Falls was much more scenic

An extremely cool hike. It's very well protected with hand rails and stones making an otherwise exposed climb of a Sierra granite dome accessible to many. Our 3 year old son was able to navigate this route both up and down, without an episode, and it felt safe to both his parents. The views were great.

pretty strenuous think about what you bring if backpacking it is not at buckeye campground it is a dirt road right before the entrance to campground follow for a few miles trail head is marked there lots of Creek crossings constant up and down cool views there is camping sites at 3 miles in and around 4.5 miles in that are not marked on the map

A difficult hike going in, but the views were beautiful! very rocky during the switchbacks, making the uphill trek challenging. Took 2 hrs up & 50 mins down . For those of us "mature "hikers, I recommend hiking poles. Interesting hike in that there were many many Dogwoods down low, and many many fir trees up high. Not as many Sequioas, but a few. Great views at the top, however it was hazy due to scheduled burns during my Oct 2019 trip.

6/30/19 We got early at Giant Forest Museum around 7:30am where we parked our car. That’s where you can take the shuttle going up to the Moro Rock Trail point but we didn’t take the shuttle, instead we hiked the 1.7 mile trail for 30 mins which I highly recommend, the trail was beautiful with big trees, flowers, water spring and more to explore. You’ll see the big white sign of Moro Rock to start. The Moro Rock was steeped with hand rails, another level of stair master but when you got to the top, it was spectacular and be sure to go up there early, you want to enjoy the view with less people. At 8:30am, it was the perfect time. Going back to the Giant Forest Museum, we didn’t take the shuttle again. We did the other side trail which is Bear Hill Trail for less than 2 miles and it was beautiful too. I would love to go back to these trails again.

Busy, but a must-see stop to enjoy the massive trees!

I never got to the trail. The so called "paved" road from Hammond is worst than a dirt road. I turned back after 7 km of the 35 km because it was getting worst. First time it happens to me and i have done lots of gravel and dirt road with my car. Better going there with a 4x4 and get a spare tire because there is lots of sharp rocks poping from the very old pavement, it's like driving on nails... The 2 stars are not for the trail itself but for the description that misleaded us and then we lost the morning, gas and had to change our plans.
