Created in 1890, Sequoia National Park is home to the largest trees on earth and the tallest peak in the contiguous United States. At 404,063 acres and over 90% of designated wilderness, Sequoia offers over 800 miles of hiking trails. This park protects the Giant Forest, which has the world's largest tree, General Sherman, as well as four of the next nine tallest. It also has over 240 caves, the tallest mountain in the lower 48, Mount Whitney, and the granite dome Moro Rock.

Worth the short hike up some steep granite stairs. Beautiful view.

Went in early December. I would rate moderate not easy. You have to cross two rocky streams to keep on the trail. The farther you go the harder it gets. The trail was beautiful!

Awesome View of Mable Fork Canyon!! I was unable to get through to Heather Lake due to snow. Please notice, this trail is also called the Watchtower trail. There is a sign along the trail notifying hikers when the Watchtower trail is closed. It suggests that you take what is called The Hump Trail to get to Heather Lake. Can’t wait to try again in better weather

Did this small hike with my 2 years old son and my husband, it is very scenic and beautiful. The way up is maintained however, we had to keep holding hands with our 2 years child because the trail is surrounded by cliffs.

Not stroller friendly

A great walk in the woods with incredible scenery. Not sure I would quite rate this hard but there are some narrow ledges with fairly big drops. Go slow and watch your step as you should do with any elevated hike. Highly recommended!

Great day hike. The trail via WatchTower has great views and places to sit and absorb the scenery from.
The lake is beautiful and worth the steep climb...

Difficult with a heavy pack but views and the lakes (lower and upper Maggie) were awesome!

This is not peppermint falls. This is the water slides. Peppermint falls is up the road by lower peppermint campground.

We went in late fall. Loved it. Look forward to doing it in spring.

Love this trail!!!

Nice hike mostly in the woods gets more demanding towards the second half of the trail. Leads to a nice small lake.

The last 2.1 miles, from the fork between Alta Meadows and Alta Peak are completely snow-covered. I hiked it the Friday after Thanksgiving, and had to trail blaze using the GPS. It's possible some of it has thawed, but be prepared to hike over snow/ice/slush to reach the summit. Since the sun sets around 4:40pm, I would recommend bringing a headlamp and coming down from the summit around 2pm at the latest if you don't want to hike in the dark. The views from 2.8 miles onward are breathtaking.

Did this hike back in July, it's really beautiful but a steep climb
