Beautiful easy, paved trail is near level to Tharp's log. The trail skirts along Crescent meadow, views of redwoods, deer, and in the fall amber leaves of some species. A really beautiful and easily accomplished walk, with some effort, i took a friend in a wheelchair. Crescent meadow is closed during winter.

Words can not express the magnificent beauty of this place. The grand scale of these beautiful trees is breathtaking . We were not able to see the grand Sherman tree, the oldest living tree in the world because we had our dog with us. Most of the park you'll be able to bring your pets in a leash... just not... More

Not every park visitor goes here, but it is a lovely spot - well worth the short drive. Lots of lovely Sequoias line the meadows and driving through one is a great experience!

It is just a short way from the Sequoia visitor centre. Going toward this loop you could see more about Sequoia park. And the place is noce to drive through.

We hiked from Moro car park and round the Crescent Meadow Loop. The Fall colours were beautiful. Excellent hike.

But the Meadow loop trail is lovely and easy and cool on a warm day. A variety of trees and good interpretive signs. Great place to take small children and allow them to run around as long as they respect barriers and signs and the trees. Some you can approach and some are off limits.

We enjoyed driving through Crescent Meadow Loop and photo opportunities. The only downside is the photographs when we were there there were large groups driving through stopping and taking lots and lots of photos before driving on and going through again with a different driver. The queue then builds up and a few drivers were starting to be restless and... More

Yes we got a photo just like in the National Geographic magazine we saw forty years ago. An easy drive to the meadow with a good place for a lunch stop.
