Short but great pay off!

I did this hike back in 91'. Had my 18 month old daughter on my back in her little backpack. Great views from up by the lookout. fairly easy trail

I've walked this short loop many times. Lots to see along the way other than the General Grant tree. It's an easy walk, and yes, there is always a crowd.

Round trip in one night with my wife. We should have spent two nights. Took us about 12 hrs each way. Beautiful but rugged on the downhill. Would do it again in a heartbeat. Completed this in July of 2015.

3-12-17 Beautiful trail. Made it about 5 miles down the way. Snow in several parts of the trail. Used it to refill water bottles! Snowslide canyon was gorgeous. The way out is all uphill and is a good workout.

It was tough going the one way up for me because it was mostly uphill but the waterfall at the end of it is totally worth it. Took 1.5 on way up, 1 hr down. At this time conditions are nice. Lots of shade at the end portion near waterfall.

Did this trail in early March. There was plenty of snow, so bring your snowshoes or skis. Trail is pretty easy to follow, but be warned that the grade and elevation can really get to you on this one. Plan several hours for your trip. Much of the views along the way are slightly obscured by trees, so if you are able really try to get to the pass at "the Hump" for spectacular sweeping views.

Great hike. Not too challenging. Perfect amount of time and a waterfall at the end is always a nice treat. bring your inner tube. There's a man made channel that looks like it would make a great lazy river.

The hike to Eagle Lake is only a little over 3.2 miles but tough elevation gain...anglers who love to catch small brook trout here can do so on at least every other cast...I recommend center of the East side of the lake...this lake is beautiful...I'm a local and make the trip at least twice a year...I'f even for a day hike...id visit more often but there are so many wonderful spots in Sequioa National Park...

Really just a bunch of stairs and people, but if you can get past that quickly the view is amazing.
