    Sarah Acosta reviewed Barker Dam Nature Trail

    3 months ago

    This trail is pretty short, but don’t let that fool you! You can spend a lot of time exploring this area. I thought it was very peaceful, I did this hike around 7am in February. So not a lot of people were out, but by the time I finished the parking lot was full. I took my time exploring the rock features along the way. Plus, it’s probably the only place you’re going to see a body of water in the park. Lol.

    This trail is easy, but not when covered in snow. Following footprints just gets you lost. We turned this hike into a big ordeal, but it was worth it when we finally made it to Taft point. We just did a little extra work for some awesome views, worth it!!! We took the correct trail on the way back and it seriously only took ten minutes

    Sarah Acosta reviewed Upper Yosemite Falls Trail

    AMAZING! Every step was hard, but totally worth it when I made it to the top. The trail starts out with numerous switchbacks and to be honest those never really end. Once you pass the base of the upper falls, the trail gets steeper and the steps become uneven granite. There's numerous springs that flood the trail too so watch your step because it can get slippery. This trail is really crowded, so it's hard to keep momentum while going up. We took a ton of breaks and photo ops so overall the hike to the top took about five hours and the way down about an hour. Once you get to the top continue on to the look out, it's worth it!!!! I loved this hike, but it is certainly strenuous

    This hike was fantastic! We started from the chaparral side, took the juniper canyon trail to the high peaks. It was tiring at first, a little switchbacky, but it goes fast. Once you're at the top the rest of the trail is down hill. The views are incredible, unlike something I've seen before. Freud would have him self a field day with most of those rocks. The caves were cool, fun to go through and had to do some scrambling (my favorite). We saw some bats, but sadly no condors or tranchulas. The map says to allow four to five hours for this one, but if you're anything like me and like to stop to admire the view and take a few photos, please give yourself more time. Ended up doing 10.6 miles and loved every second of it!

    Nice peaceful trail. The waterfall was small, but still worth the trip. I also saw a salamander and some cool fungi. The forest is so beautiful and quaint, there's no way not to enjoy this one!

    It's not that exciting but good if you want to get outside for a bit with your pups. The trail can get crowded and hot. There's not a whole lot of shade...
    The labyrinths are cool, the volcanic features are cool, the hike is alright

    Sarah Acosta reviewed Mormon Rocks Interpertive Trail

    over 2 years ago

    My dad was a firefighter stationed at Mormon rocks, so of course I had to make the journey out there to explore his old stomping grounds, my parents even had some of their first dates here. This place has a special place in my heart for that reason...
    Overall it's a cool place, has a great geologic story. I brought my dog and she loved it too! A lot of places to climb and explore. Just be sure to bring plenty of water (like you should with every hike).

    Short walk from where you park. Crowded and probably the easiest waterfall to get to within the park Sonora crowded. But seriously, who doesn't love a good waterfall?

    Great, short, brisk little hike! The panoramic views are spectacular!!! A lot less crowded than glacier point too. When we went in May they was still some snow on the dome so watch your footing because it's a long way down! Also make sure and see the famous "Jeffery Pine" from that one Ansel Adams photo lol.

    Short walk with a spectacular view. It is a sight worth stopping for. There are only two waterfalls in CA that flow directly into the ocean and this is one of them (the other is Alamere Falls). This place has some cool history as well. Plus, there were tons of spouts in the distance!

    Sarah Acosta reviewed Chimney Rock Trail

    Another favorite of mine. Went here for Valentine's Day and I was surprised it wasn't crowded. Tons of elephant seals, you can hear them making all sorts of interesting sounds all throughout the hike. The views are awesome! So beautiful with the calm water of drakes bay to the left and the crashing waves of the pacific to the left. It's really just a cool little hike.

    Wind tunnels are cool! Loved climbing on the rocks. Unfortunately, I didn't complete the trail. I spent a lot of time playing on the rocks.

    Sarah Acosta reviewed Calaveras Big Trees State Park: South Grove Trail

    over 2 years ago

    Good hike. Not very hard, and sights are worth it. We went the extra mile to see the Aggasiz Tree. These trees are massive! I could look at them for hours...
    Make sure and bring water and some bug repellent.

    Sarah Acosta reviewed Calaveras Big Trees State Park: North Grove Trail

    over 2 years ago

    A nice stroll through the woods. Be sure to grab a trail guide so you know what you're looking at! These tress are massive, but the biggest trees in the park are in the south grove. North grove is like a dream, I love the bench they have that lets you lay back and look up at the trees. A good hike for those who aren't really outdoorsy people.
