This trail had amazing views, and the plants were really colourful and interesting. We hiked it in late November. This is in the foothills so no sequoias, but beautiful nonetheless. We didn’t allot enough time before sundown so we didn’t reach the falls, but would do again.

this trail is beautiful! it's one of my favorites & is doable by beginner hikers.

definitely one of my favorite trails. around early spring is a beautiful time to go.

Lots of stickers, good hike but encountered 2 bears on this trail.

Pictures can't do these trees justice. Even with a little traffic and annoying kids it was still an awe-inspiring hike.

Easy going down. Mild elevation going up. Worth seeing Sherman tree and the other sequoias.

Quick, great trail. Did it Saturday, 11/16/19. Not too crowded. Drove right up to the trailhead. Viewed the hazy mountains and sunset in the horizon.

I did this hike 3 times this year. Once in the spring (April), once in early summer (June), and once recently in November. It is one of my favorite hikes in Sequoia. Not very difficult at all. A beautiful forest stroll next to a creek with an epic payoff at the end. It was best for me in June after the snow had melted, the wildflowers were in bloom, and the waterfall was roaring.

Wow!! I've passed this trail many times but finally decided to do it and was glad I did. Short and steep. It has an excellent view of Moro Rock right away. Once you get up to Hanging Rock the view is excellent..but don't stop there..the trail extends a little higher to an electricity station that has even more views. Moro Rock was super crowded on this day...0 people on this trail.

Stayed at the Whiskey Log camp Super beautiful trial in sequoia at low elevation with views of South Fork river all along the way Some massive sequoias about 3/4 way in! Very rocky and unpaved road 3 miles to trailhead Lots of bugs and beginning of trail but once we got to camp there were none! Saw a bear walking toward us about halfway through camp Very easily scared it off by yelling “HEY BEAR” be bear aware and PACK OUT ALL YOUR TRASH!

Highly recommended, also recommend venturing down some of the side trails to see the various named tree groups, absolutely beautiful. If you go to the founders group, watch out for falling acorns and seeds from all the chipmunks!

Phenomenal views!! Quick and easy stair climb. If you’re tall watch your head on the overhanging rock faces.

Nice to see the trees away from the crowds.

It was interesting but it wasn’t really a trail and it was too busy.

Quick 15 minutes hike with mainly steps. Views are incredible at the top. We timed it so we arrived for sunset. Highly recommended!!!

Loved it!! So pretty!! Quick hike!

This is a beautiful hike especially in the early summer when the creek beds are flowing. The just going to see the Watchtower area is well worth the trip as is Heather Lake which is breathtaking. It is a little treacherous at the Watchtower area but all in all a fabulous hike. I wouldn't say this is moderate but more like challenging, somewhere between moderate and difficult due to the elevation you already start at.

Great hike. Would’ve loved to spend more time at the falls but the bugs were awful - surrounded by a swarm that would fly straight into your mouth if you stopped moving.

Beautiful hike! Rocky at the end. Not much water in the falls but beautiful just the same. No bears though, disappointed about that.
