Nice 4.7 mile out and back trail on General’s Highway just before Big Meadow Road coming from Hwy 180. Decent elevation gain for the length. Amazing views of the Valley and more. Looking to the west/northwest, you can clearly make out the the Sugar Bowl Grove of Sequoias on the ridge line. To the Northeast you can make out Maddox, Mitchell and Shell Mtns in the Jennie Lake Wilderness. Come around to the East and Southeast amazing panoramic of snow capped peaks. Definitely kid/family friendly that doesn’t require crazy drive or all day hike. Got on trail just before 8 and was home in Clovis before noon.

Beautiful hike with great views of little Baldy, Chimney Rock, and the Western Divide! My friend and I did this hike October 2019. We went all the way to the end of the saddle and were not disappointed, no one else around and we had an amazing view of windswept granite ridges. It took us about 2.5 hours out and back and it was right around 5.6 miles to go all the way to the end!

did this trail May 21st 2020. Beautiful! varied scenery, great whitewater views. The last few miles of road leading to park entrance are dirt, rough roads. The entrance to the park boundary is closed (due to COVID 19), but there is just enough room to turn your vehicle around and park on the side of the road here, and walk maybe half a mile on the dirt road to the trailhead. I would recommend walking this part anyways, because you can much better enjoy the river to your left!

Stairs are a bitch up the view is Incredible.

Not as nice as Little Baldy, but still pleasant!

One of my first hikes ever and a favorite. Take the challenge!

We had a beautiful hike. It seemed more than moderate, and given its hard to drive to campground you may need to add 2.5-3 miles on from where you park. We went to sequoia trees by a lake - about 1/2 mile from whisky log camp. River is awesome, the wildflowers took my breath away - highly recommend for spring. Keep an eye out for sign to whisky log camp to the left. Trail fairly unkept from that point. Would do again.

beautiful view ,short little hike

I loved this hike so much! When we went in May, there was still snow on the ground but the weather was amazing. It follows the water all the way to the falls. I loved it even more because I got engaged on this hike!

This was tough, especially in the fog! Very pretty views

An easy walk but very beautiful!

Jennifer Bacon: I live nearby. Unless it happen in the last day or two, my understanding is the gates (there are two of them) are still locked. Only local (cabin owners, Silver City residences, etc.) and park employees are permitted. Your best bet is after June 1

Low traffic trail. I have hiked this trail 3 times this spring and have only seen 2 others. Beginning of trail has a lot of poison oak growing next to and dangling over the trail. Better to do this trail when it is cooler outside (long pants weather). In May, I started 20 minutes before sunrise and that was wise. The first 45 minutes of the trail is in the morning sun; and then there is alternating sun and shade from there on. The trail does not get much maintenance, but it looks like trail users are bringing their own saws to cut up trees across the path. Expect to be diverting from the path once in awhile. Other than the poison oak and downed trees, this is a great trail. There are pockets of Giant Sequoia's next to some of the creeks on the way up. Garfield Grove is a 4 - 4 1/2 hour hike up the path.

Very nice views at the top. Took it slow with kids and felt safe all the way up. This was easy compared to some of the other trials we did in sequoia.. shuttle took us most of the way to the rock and all we had to do was take the steps up up and up.

Update: entrance closed.

Great trail, there was still some snow along the way too. Plenty of shade and it has some good slopes but plenty of level spots for water breaks. The views are fantastic and the top of the mountain is beautiful. Bring sunscreen and bug repellant. Great clean trail for a day hike.

Has anyone been here recently? I want to hike in and backpack for 1 night. I know we are supposed to shelter in place right now but I was wondering how strict the enforcement is right now in this area...

One of my all time favorites ! If afraid of heights the hump trail is for you, but i always take Watchman! Always practice leave no trace policies !!! pack it in pack it out

Decent easy, hike with our 5 year old. Plenty of beautiful wildflowers. Tons of butterflies everywhere. I was surprised that the trail wasn’t right at the riverbank but it was a beautiful view. Not very busy. Very slow go even with no traffic. Last 7-9 miles on a one lane road with turn outs.

Great trail. Did it with my kids in March of 2018 and because we had a late winter there was still snow. However, I have done this trail many times.

I would not recommend this trail for beginners. I am a beginner at off-roading and I was inches away from flipping my truck in multiple occasions. I think this trail is meant for smaller off-roading vehicles with big tires. I had two spotters helping me one the tuff spots and it was still extremely difficult. I drove my 02 Silverado 1500 z71. It has 32’s on it with a 5 inch lift. The tree branches were scraping the sides and the top of my truck the whole way up and down. The reason I don’t recommend this trail for beginners is because you are so high up next to a huge cliff most of the trail, and huge 3ft-5ft drops, one false move you could flip your vehicle or worse. But it’s a pretty beautiful scenic view. I also have tow mirrors and I had to fold them in or else I wouldn’t fit in some tight spots. There is one spot in the trial where I had to fit in an extremely narrow spot and one side of my truck there was a 4ft drop and on the other side it was the cliff. I was less than 3 inches away from both. I honestly don’t know how I made it back out. I went far enough to see the gate closed and turned back around. It was good learning experience though.

Great trial, beautiful views, very quiet didn’t see anyone except deer’s .

Be ready and plan ahead for the drive. The last 7 miles is a dirt road that takes a fat minute so bring a car with good ground clearance. The trail is super pretty and easy. 10/10 recommend during flower bloom. No ones on the trail super peaceful.
