Hiked this trail on 2/1/17 went up to whiskeylog camp stopped at ladybug camp to rest trail is wonderful so many ladybugs nice little waterfall towards the end of ladybug camp was nice and would recommend for a small day hike after ladybug camp the trail started to have plenty of snow on it for about a mile i was hiking on snow very nice trail only complaint i have is south fork rd to get to the trail head is very very rough i would not recommend a car unless you were driving 2mph there is some spots where a 4x4 could get stuck just a little bit to think about
Took the family and the dog here on November 25, the weather was great and the kids enjoyed all the lady bugs. The trails were empty and was a great time of the year to go.
South Fork is One of my favorite areas of SNP. Awesome little southern corner where you don't get nearly as many other folks traipsing around.
perfect for a weekend trip. Trail runs alongside the Kaweah River so there's plenty of drinking water and areas for dipping your feet along the way, which is especially nice because the trail can get very hot. Bring lots of bug repellant or you will get eaten alive by flies and ladybugs. Combo of ladybugs and sequoias is the most adorable thing I've ever seen.
This was a great hike yesterday. The trail is narrow at points. It's mostly up hill hiking in and down hill hiking out. I thought it to be a little more difficult than the "easy" status but I'm a new hiker. But I most enjoyed it!
It's ok trail for the day hikes
Our first official hike as a family. Cute area. Mostly uphill going and down coming back. Narrow path most of the way but a cute little stream to stop and eat lunch by.
Pretty awesome trail. Me, my niece, and nephew did the trail on 12-26-14. The road was pretty rough just before getting to the beginning of the trail but it was worth it. Great trail and i would do it again.
Nice hike along a beautiful creek!
Our family truly enjoyed the hike. We plan to return for a visit soon.
Great winter hike - lower elevation and southern exposure. I'm not sure what time of year the ladybugs accumulate there (check one of the other reviews) but it's an interesting phenomenom. This part of the national park requires no entrance fee! (so far)
awesome...never in my life have i seen that many ladybugs :)
