Big Trees on the Big Trees Loop
The Big Trees Loop starts at the Giant Forest Museum and goes around the Round Meadow. It is an easy hike, starts out paved and many sections are on wood planks over the meadow. The outside edges of the loop are lined with giant Sequoia trees. There are many interpretive signs along the way with info on both the trees and the history of the park/area. It is right in the middle of the Giant Forest.
This is a true loop, you will end will you started. This is also an easy trail near the hwy and museum so you will not be alone on the trail, expect others. there are a few other trails that shoot off from this trail, plenty of signs/maps at the trail head.
Allow at least an hour for the loop, even though it is short, its very scenic, you may spot wildlife, and there is some reading to do too.
We found this trail to be good for spotting bears in the meadow.
Near the trail head are restrooms and a water station.
