  • It's a bit off the main roads but certainly an enjoyable side trip. The easy paved path and trail markers take you very close to the giants and into the forest. When we visited they had been doing som...  more »
  • Be advised the drive to the Trail of 100 Giants is windy and no guard rails which made my wife quite nervous, just drive cautiously. For some reason all the parking areas were closed off due to renova...  more »
  • This was worth the detour on our way to Anaheim from Utah. The trees are majestic - pictures don't do them justice. The trail is easy and can be done in an hour.

  • So amazing to see those historic trees. The trail is beautiful and I highly recommend you visit this place at least once in your life. I only recommend that you arrive earlier in the morning or later afternoon, especially on holidays, in order to avoid the crowds.
  • It's great! Parking is $5, which is okay! You see how big the sequoias are. You can walk over fallen trees, climb roots, go inside a tree... Really good for old and young!
  • This is great day trip for those nature loving grandchildren Pack a picnic lunch walk the tees and DON'T FORGET THE CAMERA. A well preserved trail that brings all family close to nature. Absolutely our favorite place to go with the kids and grandchildren. Also several places to stop on the way so ancy kids can get out and look around. An 1 1/2 from Bakersfield.
  • There is no way to adequately describe how enormous and awe inspiring these ancient giants are. If you think you've seen big trees before, think again. Unfortunately, the trail was closed on 4/21/16 due to dead and dying trees that have fallen, or are in danger of falling on the trail. Hopefully it will reopen soon. Sadly, insects, disease, wild fires and drought are killing our forests. Take your kids to see this incredible place soon. It may not be there for their kids to see it.
  • Excellent place to visit but be prepared to walk a little ways, parking may not be nearby the trail....what we get for underfunding the Park Service and Forest Service for decades...and concession fees don't count.. . But the trees are just amazing....if you are not astounded you're way too jaded!!
