Such an great hike. Beware of the altitude. You don’t realize how high you are when you start this. Take it slow especially if you’re carrying a big pack. The alpine lakes are gorgeous and sleeping next to them under the moonlight is something you need to experience. The light just reflects off the granite and lake, lighting up the whole area. If you go after October it can get COLD. Be prepared. Fair warning use the bear storage lockers or bring a canister. I didn’t realize i left a few bars in my pack and had a black bear sniffing outside my vestibule. It was a cold fun night. Happy Trekking!

Forest road 14s11 is closed due to Covid but should be open June 1st. We hiked in from the gate, approx 3.3 miles, to the Weaver Lake trail head. Make sure you have some kind of GPS and the trail map for the segment between Jennie lake and Weaver Lake if you’re doing the entire loop. There are quite a few are where the trail disappeared. We downloaded the all trails map layers for this loop and was able to find our way back onto the trail using that.

Nice 4.7 mile out and back trail on General’s Highway just before Big Meadow Road coming from Hwy 180. Decent elevation gain for the length. Amazing views of the Valley and more. Looking to the west/northwest, you can clearly make out the the Sugar Bowl Grove of Sequoias on the ridge line. To the Northeast you can make out Maddox, Mitchell and Shell Mtns in the Jennie Lake Wilderness. Come around to the East and Southeast amazing panoramic of snow capped peaks. Definitely kid/family friendly that doesn’t require crazy drive or all day hike. Got on trail just before 8 and was home in Clovis before noon.

Beautiful hike with great views of little Baldy, Chimney Rock, and the Western Divide! My friend and I did this hike October 2019. We went all the way to the end of the saddle and were not disappointed, no one else around and we had an amazing view of windswept granite ridges. It took us about 2.5 hours out and back and it was right around 5.6 miles to go all the way to the end!

We did this hike back in November 2019. Very secluded and beautiful with a small waterfall and the interesting cabin made out of a redwood log. This took us about 3 hours and it was right around 7.2 miles. I would highly recommend this hike for a beautiful and quiet redwood forest experience!

Great hike. Gorgeous sequoias everywhere. Amazing views at the top of baldy ridge. GPS was acting and recorded more miles. Actually only did about 7

Beautiful. Keep going back!

Quick n easy.

Not as nice as Little Baldy, but still pleasant!

Great trail, there was still some snow along the way too. Plenty of shade and it has some good slopes but plenty of level spots for water breaks. The views are fantastic and the top of the mountain is beautiful. Bring sunscreen and bug repellant. Great clean trail for a day hike.

Absolutely stunning trail, but it is hard sometimes because of the sequoia’s cones - they are very sturdy to step on, you can hurt your ankle or slip. And we did not see the Fallen Goliath :(

My first backpacking trip ever. Had so much fun. Highly recommend

Road down is pretty rough unless you have a serious 4wd truck. The road is 2miles each way and has great views and sequoias, so a nice 4mile option. The trails have about a foot and a half of snow and I was the first one to make tracks.

Hiked this today (3/10/20). Trail is in great shape. You can walk a little over a mile to Moro rock from main parking or you can drive to it. Walking adds distance but really gives you a good feel of what sequoia has to offer. No major wildlife sightings. Little bit of sleet on the way up. Would not recommend campers; wife & I turned around after talking to ranger. Needless to say we rented a car and that was an incredible decision. The end destination is what really makes the hike. “I’ve heard” that it’s pretty cool if you go over the railing and walk the rock face at the end.

A few friends and I hiked the 11 mile loop on 2/29/2020. Although the road to the trail head is open, we were not able to access the parking area due to fallen trees. Lots of debris and fallen trees on the trail but still usable. Didn't see anyone else on the entire trail and only a few patches of snow to cross. I have done this hike many times and always enjoy the view.

Beautiful hike!! The access road to trailhead was not something I I would try in a golf (adding 4 total miles to hike). The access road was very icy for the first 1/4 of the mile after that it is drivable. Anyways back to the hike! Enter though a stand of sequoias that follows through to the top of the mountain. The trees are amazing, but we did have to hike around some blow down trees on the trail. The hike has great Mountain View and finishes off following the creek at the bottom of the mountain. Be on the lookout for bears! We saw lots of bear poop.
