Yes, we needed to see if the surgery I had would allow me to enjoy hiking again and I say YES, indeed! This is coming from the perspective of an older couple (60-70 yrs old) who enjoy the outdoors. Others have remarked about it’s relative...More
This was our last hike of our 6-day hiking trip as we were leaving the park. There is limited parking along the Generals Highway.
The hike starts at 7,340 feet above sea level and works its way up thru the forest to the top at...More
Little Baldy was our first hike within the park and exceeded our expectations. We came across this hike in our “Easy Day hikes” book (found at the local park stores). The hike requires some ascending switchbacks and a brief walk through the woods, which spits...More
That's what the ranger who recommended this hike said, and I think she was right. Of course, you have to hike to get here, but it's on the easy side of a moderate trail. Very few people, so we had the 360 viewpoint all to...More
This is one of our favorites. Most of the trail is earth but there are some rocky slopes to cross. Bring plenty of water and wear good hiking boots. You walk through a forest that has the big sequoias and large areas of new growth....More
Little Baldy was our favorite trail of 40 miles we hiked on 17 trails during a 2 week vacation in Sequoia and Kings Canyon. It is nicely shade, has alot of variation, saw marmots and a deer with a fawn, but best of all it...More
The initial portion of the hike was a steep climb, but the switchbacks made it relatively easy and we were rewarded with wildflowers, stunning views of the Sierras and the panoramas from the rock itself.
We arrived at Sequoia after a long flight and a long drive from San Francisco. This was the perfect hike for us to get out of the car and stretch our legs after a long day of travel. The hike ascends quickly through some switchbacks...More
We did a 10 day trip while in CA 5 years back - flew into San Diego and drove through the Mojave desert and stayed in Three Rivers. Two of my kids enjoyed this trail more than Disneyland. Great views, lovely wildlife sightings, challenging but...More

Now this is coming from two older seniors! It took us about 3 hrs. out and back but if you are used to doing hiking and are in great shape it would probably take you half the time. We took our time to enjoy the solitude, I think we ran into less than 10 people at intervals along the way. What was great is the absolutely spectacular view of part of the Great Western Divide and the views from the Sierra Nevada range was memorable. Granted we lucked out with the weather, no smog or fog. I used my trekking poles and was glad for them. The switchbacks are long but few. Took snacks/water or you can pack a lunch and enjoy it on the summit!
