“Beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

We enjoyed the walk, they could do more with trail markers but it was nice. It would be pretty in the spring too. We saw deer and got close to 3 bucks, within 10-15 feet and they just watched us as long as you don't move too quick they seem unaffected.

“Great place for bear sightings.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

We saw a bear walk across the road here and many others spot bears in the meadow. Keep your distance, of course.

“Not bad, but not as good as other stops”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Not as good as panoramic pt, moro rock, grant grove or Sherman tree but the Tharp Log was neat. The drive thru tree is on the way so that was a neat picture stop on the way to the meadow.

We we there in October. I'm sure a visit in the Spring would be more spectacular.

“Muir is right”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

We read about John Muir thinking this area was one of the best parts of the park. He is right. The various colors of the meadow compared to the nearby forests added a wonderful memory. I hiked to the Tharp log and was impressed by this lodging that was occupied during the summer for almost thirty years. Wonderful hike.

“Easy trails, bear sightings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Well maintained and signposted trails. Lots of variety of hiking ease. We came across a couple of black bears here, which were quite docile - was great experience.
