“Brilliant, so worth any effort to see”

Lakes Trail in Sequoia National Park
Reviewed 18 September 2017

The scenery is spectacular, along winding roads, with each corner producing stunning sights. The views and vistas are simply mind blowing, and the slight drop in altitude to go into the redwood forest is indication that there is another visual feast on its way, the redwoods are amazing, I have never seen trees like it, the trees immediately engendered in me a desire to just walk up to a tree and give it a hug... though you cannot get your arms around them.
So worth any effort to experience

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.

Camping, hiking, visiting biggest trees on earth. There are so many things to do, see, enjoying for family and friends. This is one of the best camp sites in the US. Booking needs to be done months in advanced. There are convenience store on site which offers food, shower and laundry facilities. No wifi nor phone service when you are there, Yay!

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 trees along the Hump Route. There was a lot of snow but we felt comfortable because of the many blazes that made it easy to find our way. Unfortunately, the snow slowed us quite a bit so we only made it to Heather Lake which was still covered by snow. Around the edges of the lake, the blue glow of the lake was simply stunning. This was the perfect spot to enjoy the remote quiet and beauty of Sequoia National Park. I understand that this is normally a very popular trail, but we only saw four other hikers.

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 NOT write or carve on rocks, do not litter and do not feed wildlife! Pick up pet feces & throw way in trash, bury human feces & completely put out campfires. Preserve nature!
