The main area is via Wolverton Road, off the Generals Highway just north of the tree itself (between Lodgepole and the Sherman Tree). From there, the 1/2-mile (.72km) trail descends and includes some stairs. Rest on the benches along the trail; don't overexert yourself. Handicapped parking and an accessible trail are along the Generals Highway two miles (3.2 km) north of the Giant Forest Museum. You can drop off and pick up passengers here. If you have difficulty walking at this elevation (7,000ft/175m), stop at a park visitor center for a temporary parking permit.
