This is a beautiful trail around a lovely meadow. We walked around two meadows in the Giant Grove and they were so picturesque. An easy walk and also a great place to see bears.

We visited Crescent Meadow in early June 2014. We got to the Meadow just after 9am. Almost right at the beginning of the meadow we saw two bear cubs playing near the trees 15 - 20 feet from the trail. After a few minutes they started climbing up the trees. They are so cute. Of course, Mama bear was not too far away, another 20 off in the meadow eating grass/ plants. As long as you don't approach the cubs or make loud noise, the bears will leave you alone. The highlight of our Sequoia vacation.

This was a pleasant little walk around the meadow, which in October does not have any wild flowers but none the less we enjoyed watching the wildlife and looking out for bears.

What a lovely magical little meadow. Filled with wild flowers it was a photographer's dream. It was a place of coolness on a hot day.

This is an easy loop. It connects to multiple trails. You can park nearby or take the shuttle from Lodgepole or Dorst campgrounds. Numerous people were setting up cameras in the hopes of seeing bears. We just missed them. The sequoias and wildflowers were beautiful. A highlight from our trip.
