    While lost in search of our Kern River trail head we ran across this nice stroll under the Giants. Leave your 50 L packs in the car and feel free to strap on a day pack/ fanny pack and meander beneath some impressive sequoias. Be advised: If you are looking for that "wilderness experience" you may be disappointed. The trails are all neatly laid asphalt paths with comfortable benches and information placards aplenty. After paying our $5 cash parking fee, the attendant there handed us a nice guide brochure and informed us that leaving the paths was totally allowed and for us to feel free to climb on whatever we liked. This is not always the case where sequoias are involved ( shallow root systems ). She said this was allowed due the low volume of visitors to this site. Despite the tame, paved paths this easy hike affords some true majestic examples of the California Sequoia.

    Very well-maintained trail. Be prepared for a day of steady increases in elevation throughout entire trail. Especially if you continue on upward to the Pines campsite. The trail for the Pines is at the fourth Creek Crossing. I am a bit of a novice hiker and was challenged by the section leading steeply to the Pines site. The Pines afforded stellar views of the surrounding landscape with a pipe trickling water (hot water at noon) but sadly many of the pines atop this trail are dead or dying fast. Hammock campers will enjoy the options here along with the breeze. Enjoy.

    Great hike in a narrow gorge. Really impossible to get lost. Scattered pine and chaparral and oak. Plenty of shade .Nice rock formations, and not an overabundance of rattlesnakes!. The trail follows mostly dry creek beds but with some refreshing little pools and cascades along the way. Handy little fire ring in a campsite 1.6. Miles in - Small stand of tree at campsite compatible with hammock camping. If you continue on past the camp, there's a pretty clearly traveled trail leading back approximately two more miles. Even better little water pools in the creeks there. Also another more substantial fire ring set up back in that area. But not compatible with hammock camping. I really enjoyed this trail. Very limited parking past the Potrero John bridge. So get there early!

    We really like this hike. Took my parents on it( who are in their 70s). They're in great shape but still have to be cautious and had no problems. Lots of poison oak and poison ivy. Frequently encountered overgrown sections of trail. Recommend wearing pants. Trail is overgrown in places. Camp site has 3 iron grates/ rings for cooking. Great site for hammocks. Easy trail for all ages.
