This walk was maybe our favorite for it offered many giants up close as well as those across the meadow. Was quiet and distant from the road noise. Look for the golden marmont living in a hole at the base of one big tree

Fresh air and great smells of the nature forest. A short walk between the giant trees and wonderful information along the trail. A bit freezing temperature.

The Big Trees Trail is a loop around a meadow that has numerous sequoias all around it. I didn't count them, but there had to be 40-50 of them in close proximity of the trail. There is a fallen giant, which my daughter climbed on...More

Fell in love with this place and these trees in 2012 - Sequoia served as the inspiration for the origin of my novel. It was wonderful to be back amongst them. They never fail to connect to the spirit and to astound with their size....More

Big trees trail is the easiest trail of the national park. It is accessible right next to the museum. Though it is easy, the scenary is very beautiful.
