Little Baldy sign on the left side of the road. Trail is on the right where you pull over to park!

10/10. Short enough trail, but gives you everything you want out of it. Enough incline to get some exercise. 2-3 switchbacks but the trail is pretty views the whole time. There is a flat bit and since I was the only person I saw on the trail (mid-Nov) it was very peaceful! Views at the top are insane.... worth every second. Careful with your photo ops, the gravel can shift and I almost took a tumble off the cliff at one point.... oops. It was a hazy/Smokey day but I’ll definitely be coming back!

I was fortunate to have the views to myself. Less trafficked than Moro rock, tho I recommend doing both Bc they have different views. This trail is super short, you can see Moro Rock from Hanging Rock. Excellent photo op. Sat and relaxed for a bit there before moving on. (See photo of girl hanging from rock - that’s me hah)

11/24/18 Great little walk through some giants. Entire path is paved and highly trafficked. Very touristy location. It was pretty cool considering it was our first encounter with the sequoias. After we left here we drove north to hike Camp Nelson trail. It was a great balance as there were very few people and still saw some grand sequoias!

Great little secluded trail to hike for the day. Literally no one else on the trail. No views on portions of the trail but great relaxing hike to take with some friends.

We did this trail in July and really enjoyed it! Not too much elevation and many areas of shade. It was very hot and we enjoyed cooling off and wading in the creek along the trail.

As a late November hike, I knew that the chances for the waterfall to be running was slim. It was just a trickle, but hiking along the river was nice. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised with this hike. It rained a couple of days before and was very green and mossy. I saw lots of different trees and critters. It is an easy trail with two creek crossings. Being that there was no waterfall, I kept second guessing whether I was at the waterfall site. Like another reviewer of this trail, I kept following the social trail past the assumed waterfall location. I soon turned around after confirming the mileage was too far and that the trail was starting to become overgrown. On the hike back, hikers will be graced with beautiful views of Moro Rock. I do recommend this trail, and look forward to doing it again for wild flower season!

Lovely walk along the river with a clearly marked out path all the way to the falls. We went then in early November so there was only a small amount of water falling down. But looks like there would be much more water at other times of the year. Trail starts in lodgepool campsite so if your staying there is very convenient but we just parked in the visitor centre. There is toilets in campsite.

trail head visibly marked ,sad to say valley air terrible due to wildfires. Family and I came up from nearby Hanford to take day hike, enjoyed it very much, trail easy to hike maintained as a trail could be as always trip hazards one in particular was a steel post for embankment reinforcements was protruding up out of ground at a trail corner cutback. EOL the falls well worth hike falls were running well had lunch took a little nap headed back, traffic light on trail encountered 1 family on trail and at falls another couple showed up. anyway a great way to enjoy nature

A nice little moderate hike. Air quality was terrible though from the fires. The views must be spectacular when the skies are clearer. I can’t wait to do this hike again after some rain or in the spring.

This was a great hike, I’m a little out of shape but I kept up with my son! Beautiful views, unfortunately a bit hazy today from the fires but still spectacular and enjoyable!

Great hike - pretty dry falls but expected - no one else on the hike- great parking

Great stroll.

We are visiting CA from CO and we landed on this trail. It was an easy trot and worth the views. There were about 20 others on the trail to go along with 3-4 black bears. DO NOT use the directions link for this trail. We spent about an hour on the wrong trail haha. Follow the directions from some of the previous comments. Enjoy!!

great trail second time this week

Very good short trail, it is moderately trafficked in the mornings, very well defined and kept up.Trail is a steady easy climb until you finish the last switch backs then levels outs as you cross the saddle between the two mountain tops. On this level part of the trail, you will be passing through a very young forset, The tree are very short. Here you are the giant of the forest as you are taller than the trees. The views you see walking up the trail are fantastic, but what you see from the top is awesome. The very last part of the trail to the top is the hardest and the steepest. It is short, but very steep. You must keep going even if you need to take extra breaks. No matter how long it takes, it is well worth it. Very nice way to spend a morning.

Great trail during late October.

Loved this quick hike! Nice views especially at the top! I would rate it as moderate but not difficult at all.

This is more of a nature walk, so if you're looking for a workout, it's probably not what you want. I personally wanted to see Sequoias and also have my dog able to come with me. Since pups arent allowed in the park, this hit the spot! The trail is very busy but most people are friendly and respectful. You get a chance to crawl around huge trees and stand in awe of these majestic giants.
Highly recommend for small kids and dogs, and anyone else wanting to see Sequoia trees in a peaceful, shaded setting.

What a great Sequoia “foothill” trail. It is rated as moderate but there are some hard spots. Since it had rained earlier in the week, there were no bees or wasps and very little dust. This is the perfect time to hike this trail, the falls may not be at their fullest, but leaves are starting to turn and some fall flowers were blooming.
The trail head is at the very end of the Potwisha campground. If that parking is full, you can park across the road. We recommend good shoes and polls or a hiking stick.
Cannot wait to do this trail in the Spring when the falls are full!

Very easy but use the road from the meadow side ! You need a SUV at least :)

I accomplished this trail today. Beautiful weather and few people there. Haven't hiked in awhile and it was a little rough coming down (wrong shoes). Deffinitely going to do this trail in the spring next time! No bees thst I noticed.

It was a very scenic trail with amazing natural pools. The waterfall at the top was very low right now. I’d like to come back when there is more water.
