A very lovely meadow and walk. Went in the early evening and saw families of Marmots with one yipping at the top of its voice throughout. Deer showed up at the end of the hike. Plenty of opportunity to take pictures next to giant Sequoias.

Easy circular trail about 10 minutes from the museum. Few big sequoias on the way, and big meadow in the middle. Perfect spot for picnic. Worth stopping by on the way to generals.

It was a little difficult finding the trailhead for this experience, with the ranger at Big Tree Museum giving us directions. The trail crossed over the main highway...which was unique. Equally unique was walking around a huge meadow surrounded by Giant Redwoods. It was hard...More

The Big Trees Trail is just up the road from the Giant Forest Museum. Beware of limited parking. I might be best to park at the Museum and walk to the Trail (we didn't since it was snowy and we're wimps!) Nice loop trail that...More

The Big Trees Trail was one of the most interesting and impressive trails we’ve found. These incredible trees won’t let you stop taking photos (ideally use a GoPro to catch their size in one shot).
