This is a nice quiet area to explore. The drive to Crescent Meadow has plenty of unique trees and beautiful places to see. Since there were many warnings about bear boxes and food we chose this location to carry in and carry out a picnic lunch. The trek around the meadows is about 2 miles with additional areas to branch... 更多
This loop is about 2 miles thru the sequoia trees. It's shades from the trees so tends to be a bit Cooler under the Canopy. A little up hill and down but the majority is paved so it makes it easier for people less active
Walked around Crescent Meadow and drove through Tunnel Log - great! No bears though...although one was spotted by some other people on the trail
My girlfriend and I rode the shuttle around the loop so we were unable to ride through the log or get a photo-op. We took the walk around Crescent Meadow and loved all the Queen Ann's lace, ferns and lilies. The road is quite narrow in places and squeezing past a shuttle bus in a car was uncomfortable for some... 更多
This is a neat experience to drive through and take a photo opportunity. Most folks were doing that, and a few skateboarders as well. Magnificent views of the Sequoia's and it puts you in touch with how massive these trees really are, in comparison to our size and car size.
We were looking for a relatively easy hike and this one was perfect for us. The 1.7 mile trail goes by Crescent Meadow and then at 0.8 mi. arrives at Tharp's Log. Tharp homesteaded the Log Meadow area long before the national park was established. His dwelling is a fire-hollowed sequoia that was converted into a cabin as a shelter... 更多
The loop we hiked included Crescent, Log and Huckleberry Meadows. This was very relaxing and uncrowded. We hiked this mid-morning after climbing Moro Rock. Lots of sequoias and flowers. We also thought Tharp's Log was neat along with Squatter's Cabin. Both were on the way. We had talked to a couple near Huckleberry Meadow who said they saw a bear.... 更多
This is a must for anyone in the park. Auto log, car tunnel, moro rock, and so much more. There is a lot in a little amount of space, but every minute was worth it.
I meant to come early so I could watch for bears, but went to Moro Rock first and hiked from there. Wished I hadn't. The trails in the meadow are much more scenic and the breezes kept most of the bugs away there, too. I didn't see any bears, but a ranger was there surveying for bear sightings and said... 更多
Because I was there on a busy weekend in July, I couldn't drive my car through the tunnel tree, could only take the park shuttle and walk up to it. But it's still worth seeing
