Hiked this today (5/6) and the weather was much less than desirable (33 when we finished). Parked at quail flats and walked about 2 miles down the road to the trailhead as a park ranger told us to do-- conditions were totally safe to park at the trailhead though. We hiked an additional 3 miles crossed a stream and kind of seemed to lose the trail. There are some signs but not tons. There was a lot of fog which was beautiful but lacked sunshine

The tress are gorgeous!

Easy hike down and the hike up is moderate-- pretty much making up the elevation the whole time! I'm an avid crossfitter and in pretty good shape and the hike up was a solid moderate:)

Tip: in kings canyon and sequoia you are at elevation--- water water water! And prepare for it to be chilly!

Beautiful, peaceful forest hike, nothing too steep. Incredible, ancient sequoias of course! Surprised this late in the year that the 2-mile dirt road was clear

It's like heaven fell onto the earth. Mostly shaded trails, well broken in and quite easy honestly. You walk on soft pine needles. Plenty of giant boulders. One of the best hikes of my life.

This is a great day hike with a few points of interest and some rad Sequoia groves. We did the Hart Tree part of the loop before hiking back to the parking area using the Redwood Creek trail. The 6.5 mile loop took us about 3 hours at a pretty casual pace. Next time we'll plan for a little more time and complete the entire Redwood Mountain Loop.

It was nice. Mostly shaded trails. The trail was a bit more then easy. I would rate as medium. Lots of ladybugs by the creek about half way in the loop. The dirt road to the parking area was bumpy.

My wife and i completed this trail on Sunday 01/25/2015. The trail was beautiful. Lots of sequoias, some small creaks, and LOTS of lady bugs. All in all, it was a great way to spend a Sunday!

There are 16 miles of trails starting here but we did the 6.4 miles of Sugar Bowl loop. I particularly enjoyed the first half that takes you uphill through groves of Sequoias. There's an overlook of Big Baldy which was alright, before descending into the canyon. The rest if the hike was ok with some Sequoias here and there. The drive to the trailhead was a bumpy 10 min dirt road from the main hwy with quite a few nice looking sequoias along the way. No cell reception so beware. Came across a young Rattler on the trail. Great hike.

This is a beautiful hike through Sequoia groves. About 5 miles from Grant Grove Village heading toward Sequoia NP on Generals Highway you will turn south and drive down a winding dirt road for about 2 miles to get to the trail. There are options for loops that vary from about 6.5 miles to over 10 miles. If you don't have time for the the entire hike enjoy a walk in then return the way you came. It's well worth it even if you don't choose to hike one of the loops. A magical forest without the crowds found on the more popular trails.
