Bear Hill Trail is a 2 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Sequoia National Park, California that features a great forest setting and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking and trail running and is accessible from May until November.
Wonderful trail! Much nicer than taking the shuttle to Moro Rock. A bit of a climb from the start (from the giant forest museum) but then it levels out nicely. Good chance to see bears and/or deer on this trail.
Nice easy trail with great views of the sequoias. Not very crowded.
It was enjoyable, about halfway down on our way back to the museum area - in the curve after auto's log - there was a freshly downed sequoia. I mean only a few days prior. The dirt by the root system was still moist and freshly turned, the bark was bright red, the branches had lush green leaves and the broken branches were still very wet with life.
It was obvious that I had just seen the death of a giant.
