Completed August 2019. - incredible overnight trail - we started at tunnel view and ended at glacier point- it was a tough uphill climb but completely worth it - camped at Dewey Point and couldn’t believe our eyes when looking at the view- out of this world!!

Nice flat walk, lots of flowers and wildlife. Arch itself is hard to find. To the back left of trail. Not too many people and all respectful of social distancing.

It was a cute trail but nothing very diverse about it. Easy path to walk but watch out for the cacti

Hiked in the beg of June. Went super early at 5:30a! you can make it far before it gets hot. It took me a second to find the trail path and get started but as long as you’re cautious with snakes you can cut over. Lots of great up and down trails. Changing terrain and animals!

Nice easy loop (even for kids) especially when it’s getting hot in the summer. Can def get crowded.

Relatively flat for the first 1.5 miles until the shear scree “scramble” up to the top of Mt. Doom that gave my butt a pretty good kickin. Phenomenal views of the Painted Dunes, Mt. Lassen, and the crater. Definitely recommend!

I'm a man in his late 20s, physically in shape, not super athletic. Enjoy tough hikes. This was a nice hike with good views at the end. Seeing the mine was cool. Nothing crazy here

I'm a man in his late 20s, physically in shape, not super athletic. Enjoy tough hikes. This wasnt too challenging. Nice walk/hike. We did it in December. Great weather for it.

I'm a man in his late 20s, physically in shape, not super athletic. Enjoy tough hikes. This "hike" was very easy and enjoyable. The dam is neat to see in the middle of the desert.

We walked around here. Nothing exceptionally fun compared to the rest of the park. Split Rock area is more fun.

This is the first place we stopped in JT. Immediately started foot climbing up the rocks (no gear) like children. Most fun I had in years! Highly recommended

Great hike! Beginning of June right after the snow melt makes for good flowing water in the stream that’s about halfway up. Beautiful cascades along the trail. Took the family the youngest is 5 years old and did it with no complaints. Even the last 1/4 mile that gets steep but once you make it to the top it opens up to the meadow! Once in the meadow it has beautiful shallow streams. It is muddy all over due to the recent snow melt.

Wouldn’t call this a trail at all. The “Skull Rock” is right off the the main road and it’s PACKED with everyone trying to get a picture with it. It’s pretty bad ass though, I love skulls lol .. didn’t mean for that to come off creepy. I enjoyed being able to see it but the crowed killed it. There a sea of rocks behind it that are super fun to scramble on, beware they are a bit sharp!

One of the best overnight trips and day hikes you can do hands down!

Google maps will tell you this is open and you can get there by making a 3hr trip around the Three Rivers entrance to Sequoia and going up through the Pinehurst area. all the signs in Kings Canyon and Sequoia will say that the park is available for drive through only. No pull offs. This is not the case, the Road is Closed Right after the entrance to the Montecito Lodge near the NordicSki Trailhead. The Park Rangers said the road used to be open for drive though during the park closure because of the Pandemic but due to people not adhering to the guidelines and camping and leaving trash behind, they closed the Road. They are planning to reopen the Road on June 4th, according to the Park Rangers.
