The Trail of 100 Giants is a dog-friendly path through the Sequoia National Forest in California. This 1.5-mile trail is an easy hike, making it perfect for dogs of all fitness levels, plus it’s wheelchair accessible. And the great news for dog parents–while the Sequoia National Park has restrictions on where dogs are allowed to roam, the Sequoia National Forest offers an alternative with more dog-friendly trails and areas to explore.
The Trail of 100 Giants is located in a 122-acre grove of giant sequoias with a chance to see some of the world’s largest and oldest trees. This includes the massive Giant Sequoias. These trees can grow up to 300 feet tall and 40 feet in diameter, making them a sight to behold.
Visitors can expect a peaceful and tranquil experience surrounded by ancient giants of the forest. Besides the giant sequoias, hikers will also see beautiful wildflowers, a variety of wildlife, and stunning mountain views.
The best time to visit the trail is between May and October when the weather is milder. During this time, visitors can enjoy the trail’s stunning views and fresh mountain air. It’s essential to bring enough water for both you and your dog since there aren’t any water stations available along the trail. Keep in mind that the parking lot and the trailhead can get crowded, especially during the peak season.
