Hard to impress our teens these days but the giant sequoias really impressed them. The Giants are very awe-inspiring. Many places to pull off and take a trail to be amongst these massive trees. The museum/information center is also a 'must see' stop. Definitely recommend.

Nothing prepared us for this view. It was stunning. The park in general is well kept, ample parking and very clean

Paved path. Relatively short walk for hikers, but with a slope that will work you if you're not in shape. Good info placed along the path. Beautiful views of the forest and significant trees, of course.
