Here’s one of the easier hikes in the Sequoia National Park. Go past the Grant tree parking lot and take the Sunset Trail to the sign for this easy loop hike.

Sunset Trail   4 comments

Go to the end of the parking lot for the Grant tree … and you’re on the Sunset Trail. It’s an easy downhill hike … and an easy return uphill!

Panoramic Point   4 comments

Panoramic Point overlooks Hume Lake in the Sequoia National Park.

Continue past Grant’s Grove, and then turn right towards the Crystal Springs campsite. Don’t turn into the campsite, just continue on the road up the mountain. Park at the small parking lot at the top of the mountain, and then you have a 350′ paved trail (which was being upgraded to an all access trail while I was there) to get to Panoramic Point.

Wish the day was not so hazy!

Lookout Trail   6 comments

In the Kings Canyon National Park, above the Crystal Springs campsite, you’ll find Panoramic Point … drive there. Then, there’s a 3 mile out-and-back trail to a Ranger lookout tower which is a lovely hike. Do the whole trail … or hike until you’ve had your fill, and then return.

I did this hike on day 1 of my campout, and did not see a single soul on the trail.
