“A wonderful, short hike through the Giant Forest.”
— Brad H
Fantastic paved path with a visual experience of the giant sequoias that won't soon be forgotten by the young-ones.
This short loop will take longer than you might expect... You'll be looking upward constntly. Beware of sore necks!
This is one of the easiest ways to see a bunch of the giant sequoias in a short amount of time.
The trail starts from the General Sherman Tree
area and makes a winding loop around the grove. It doesn't make too much of difference which way you take it. There are lots of trails intersecting the Congress Trail, but everything is very well signed, so this doesn't present too much of a challenge.
Flora & Fauna
Five of the ten largest trees (by trunk volume) are located in the grove.
