Runner Notes

This trail is popular among Sequoia's visitors, and though paved, won't make for very good running. Besides, you'll constantly be stopping to admire the trees, so take your time!

Description

The Big Trees Trail is a level and paved nature trail circling 0.8 miles beneath towering sequoias along the edges of Round Meadow. Handicapped visitors can park at a lot near Round Meadow for a 1-mile wheelchair-friendly journey. Able-bodied visitors starting from the Giant Forest Museum can pick between a couple routes to Round Meadow for a 1.4-mile outing with just 50 feet of elevation change and some stairs. There are plenty of benches located around the meadow to take in the scenery.
