hardly anyone on this trail now that the road is used. lots of deer and bear tracks in the snow. as of 11/16, most of the trail is clear of snow except in the shady parts.

We had a beautiful little early evening stroll along the meadow. Get there around 6 to see light dancing through the trees and along the meadow. I got a little turned around getting to the trail: in upper parking lot there is a sign that reads “Moro rock trail” follow the road up, stay right to drive under the tree trunk, and you’ll eventually come across the meadow. Apparently you can also do Moro + The Meadow but then it’s a much longer hike. This was also a lovely little evening drive if that’s more your mood. Bring bug spray for sure!

Loved it.. Easy trail and the view was wonderful. Meadow was so beautiful. Saw a fawn on the trail. Perfect for children but not stroller friendly. Took us a little longer then it should have to complete because we like to wonder off trail on occasion.

Very easy paved trail. If you want to experience without black bears go in the morning time. After/evening there was a female black bear with 2 cubs. Keep your distance and they leave you alone

Lots of bugs, and not stroller friendly. Other than that we enjoyed the trail and the kids enjoyed it.

An easy walk that’s mostly shaded with beautiful views, but bring bug spray. The meadow was real wet and that moisture brings bugs. Stop at the Chimney Tree!

Nice trail. Good for kids. Biting flies are horrible. People are respectful of space.

Came at golden hour (~6pm) and was the only person on the trail. Beautiful views, make sure to bring bug spray!! Ended up turning around about 2/3 of the way because I was alone and the trail was so deserted.

Went late afternoon heading to the right of the sign (south) and encountered a split where you can go to the left and get to the Chimney tree or continue on the pavement to Tharps log. We chose Chimney. It didn't look like too many hikers choose that route. Long story short we got to the Chimney tree and I made loud noises in case a bear was snoozing inside. It wasn't but just to the right (40ft) were two blond bear cubs that came out when I made the noise. We made a hasty retreat since we are wary of catching mother bears by surprise. Just giving a warning so no one gets too close to them. Beautiful scenery though.

Went really early in the morning and got to take in all of the surroundings of this trail. Not a lot of people there at that time and far away from traffic so you could just hear the wind and wildlife. Really enjoyed this trail.

Easy trail amongst the giants. Over 100 Giant Sequoias in the grove that are over 1000 years old from the looks of them.

I did this trail while my friends when up to heather lake. The meadow was nice, but there is a false trail that takes you through the meadow. It’s a bit swampy, and I don’t recommend it. It was also hard to find the trail from the other side if you’re not familiar with the area. I backtracked through the meadow to find the real trail, which takes a left up right before the meadow. All in all a nice easy hike if you’re not looking for much elevation

Beautiful meadows and large sequoias, perfect for families with small kids. Got to see a bear not to far from the trail. This was a perfect hike for beginners or people who are looking to get more out of their visit to the park. Its a quick loop with tons of cool stuff to see.

The Crescent Meadow trails are sweet (and easy). We hiked for about 2 hours in the afternoon, and basically covered all the trails, including High Sierra to Eagle View (moderate but short), which offers terrific views of the snow-capped Sierras. Highly recommend these trails. There’s something for everyone. And you can also hike to Moro Rock (1.5 miles) from the trail head at the parking lot. Personally, I liked Thorp’s Cabin built into a hollow sequoia tree, very cool.
