Sugar Bowl Loop

Sugar Bowl Loop - Search Nearby - Added by The Outbound Collective

The Hart Tree Loop Trail is a 7.4 mile hike in Kings Canyon National Park that features a river, large sequoia groves and many historic landmarks.

The trailhead is near Quail Flats down a dirt road. The road is sometimes closed due to flooding or snow or restoration - if the road is closed when you go, add 4 miles to the overall trail mileage. 

The trail begins across from the Sugar Bowl trail. You will see lots of amazing landmarks on this trail, including the site of an old fence mill from the 1800s, Pierce Log Cabin (which was made from a fire hollowed sequoia), a meadow, the Hart tree itself, a lot of little creeks and a little waterfall, fallen Goliath (a massive downed tree), a back country campsite, and a log foot bridge. All of this historical scenery is accompanied by beautiful vistas and massive trees.The waterfall is a great location for a picnic lunch or a long snack and water break. Autumn is a prime season to hike this trail, as you will encounter colorful leaves on the ground and in trees.
