Nice short paved trail near the Sequoia NP Giant Forest Museum, a short walk from the overflow parking lot to Beetle Rock and the Beetle Rock Family Nature Center. Beetle Rock is an open bald granite flat mound with impressive views to the south and west. The trail begins at the bathrooms in the overflow parking lot, and is fairly flat to Beetle Rock. Great spot for kids. Nice place for a picnic but can get crowded.
