Congress Trail

Congress Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Predictably, the most popular trail in the Giant Forest takes visitors to the biggest giant sequoia in the world, the General Sherman Tree, as well as many of the other most notable Big Trees in the grove, including the fourth, fifth, and twenty-ninth largest. On this loop you will also see two of the most notable stands of sequoias, the Senate and House Groups. Connecting trails offer the possibility of numerous side trips to even more prominent Big Trees. Don’t expect to experience these monarchs in reverent solitude; the trail’s popularity will dictate otherwise, although the number of tourists drops dramatically the farther hikers travel from the parking area."
