Bobcat trails actually goes up to moro, that's a way to connect crescent meadow to moro rock. Nothing so special, but it's a good connect

My sister and I hiked this trail in November around 3pm. The views are great! On our way to the point we could not find the trail once we made it to the top of the first hill. It took us awhile to find but we did. On our return back, at the point we loss the trail before We encountered a mountain lion. There was no way for us to get around it so we had no choice but to turn around and go to the next stop of Morro Rock which was 2.5 miles away. Unfortunately the mountain lion followed us the whole way and was about 2 feet away when it was closest to us. We lost the trail 2 times while it was following us due to the trails not being marked. We ended up finding the road instead of the trail with the mountain lion right behind us. Thankfully the cars helped chase it back into the woods and we found someone nice enough to take us back to our car. We had lots of cuts and bruises and we were soaking wet from ending up in a creek. Crazy experience. Definitely go in the early afternoon to avoid mountain lions!

Short trail and doable with an infant . Awesome views from Bobcat point. Some granite slick with ice in winter.

Unexpected surprise cascade over granite at the midpoint. Hiked counter clockwise which is in my view the harder way because the climb back is hiker than any point on the Sugar Pine portion of the trail

Started Sugar Pine Trail at the Crescent Meadow parking lot heading toward Moro Rock. The first part of the trail you pass through an area that looks like it has been through a fire. There are a number of downed tress, but allot of new growth that is five to ten feet tall. The trail traverses over and through massive granite rocks and slabs. This might be part of the foundation of Moro Rock . You travel down the trail .5 mile and then cross over Crescent Creek and commence on an upward climb to Bobcat Point. There are wonderful views of Moro Rock through the trees along the trail. Once you reach Bobcat Point the area opens up and you have magnificent views of Moro Rock and the Middle Fork of Kaweah River. After checking out the views you recommence your upward climb and meet up with the High Sierra Trail. You turn left and return to Crescent Meadows parking lot. If you were to turn right onto the High Sierra trail, you could also see Eagle View, another wonderful spot to see splendid view of the area. It might be recommend to take this hike in the winter when the heat induced haze and smog are greatly reduced.

Really nice views of the Kaweah peaks as well as Castle rocks. Take time to go to the top of Moro Rock, spectacular views and decent bouldering and rock climbing.
