This trail is awesome. Especially as an overnight hike. Take the hike past the watchtower for the most amazing, but very scary, views.

If you're not in a good shape, don't have an entire day, or don't intend to do a serious hiking, don't take the lake trails. There are many shorter, easier and paved trails in the Giant Forest area that are more enjoyable instead of challenging....More

It was awesome day's event! We drove from San Diego. We reached in the evening. Hotels close to the park are expensive. So we chose a place a little further away, at a reasonable price. Next morning we drove to Sequoia National Park. It was...More

The scenery was spectacular! We were able to hike with our 6 and 8 year olds without a problem. I wish we had allotted 2 days to see more of this park.

We were feeling ambitious. We wanted to make a day hike to Pear Lake. About 2 miles into our hike, snow covered the trail. So, we could not take the planned route by the Watchtower Trail. Instead, we loosely followed the trail blazes mounted on...More

I love this trail! I've hiked it a couple times to Pear Lake! Beautiful lakes along the way. I love how you start out surrounded by beautiful trees and then end up above the tree line with gorgeous granite mtns. Remember, leave no trace! Do...More

We went about 2 miles up the Twin Lakes Trail from the end of the Wuksachi Lodge road. The trail is a bit of up and down, across beautiful creeks, in the dense forest, a bit in open areas, near massive granite outcrops. Wish we'd...More
