As a kid every year my mom and sister and I would take a trip to sequoia for a week I know that park like the back of my hand. This was a stop it is worth every step. It is time consuming especially if you have asthma or arthritis but so worth it give it a try.

So, you climb 360 something steps for a vista that will take your breath away. Sound easy, right?! Except, the only thing that keeps you from falling is what seems like a fairly flimsy metal fence, some of the steps aren't actually steps and it's really, really high. Did I say how high you up are?!! But, oh my, it's... More

Climb the steps to great lookout. Particularly great for families with younger children; a great introduction to the rewards of hiking.

An amazing place. The views are spectacular. The climb up is a little challenging for the under 5 or over 60 crowd, but well worth it.

Those 350 steps up and out onto the cliff where daunting for someone who hates heights. But I did it. I took it slow, had great encouragement from other hikers (and my husband and nephew). It was amazing. I'm not sure I will ever get to do it again, but I have the photos to prove it and also photos... More

I was glad I made the climb up the rock to the top. It was an accomplishment off my Bucket list. The view at the top was spectacular and the Ranger we met on the trail up was informative and friendly.

The road to go here is not that far. But it is so peaceful and pretty here. We saw bears, deer and other wild life. We enjoyed it so much we drove through a 2nd time. Many photo ops along the way with some pretty amazing trees. And you get to drive through a tree that had fallen and they... More
