Begin at the North Grove Trails Trailhead. Start your hike along the Sunset Trail
, and follow the trail signs to the Dead Giant Loop
. The beginning of the trail is paved, but is mostly dusty dirt or sand. When you get to the Dead Giant Loop
you'll notice there are two trails; you can take either one as you'll return on the other. This loop is on the western-most side of the park and offers views of Sequoia Lake outside the park. It's fun to see the unique features of each giant sequoia. Stay alert for wildlife.
