Walk amongst the giants of the world in Californias woods with trout fishing around and nice campsites but watch of for the hungry bears that like to peep around your camp site if they can smell any trace of food.

Stunning trees making you feel humble at natures beauty. Good access even if your not the fittest person, and space to chill on your own and avoid the crowds. Definitely worth a visit any time of the year

This is a must do on a visit to Sequoia. The trees are what's happening. Easy walking on a nicely maintained walk that includes wood decking for easy use for wheel chairs.
