General Sherman Tree Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The General Sherman Tree is truly one of the world’s great wonders, reaching heights near 275 feet and a volume of more than 52,500 feet, and achieving a circumference at its base of more than 100 feet. In the 1800s, a skeptical public refused to believe the existence of such massive conifers.
Two relatively easy routes allow visitors to admire General Sherman: a very short, handicapped-accessible trail from a shuttle bus stop off Generals Highway and a half-mile, paved path from the General Sherman parking lot (also accessible by shuttle bus)."
