  • Pretty laid back walk for you to enjoy with the family. Seeing the large trees up close is pretty amazing

  • We took a long hike from the small parking area along a very dusty trail. It's not as scenic as most of Yosemite but it is also very quiet, so it depends on what you're looking for.

  • Nice hike !
  • Absolutely beautiful. Stunning sequoia trees. About a 2 mile track from the car park, with a 600ft climb on the way back up....secluded place....
