Little effort with a big reward. Views over the Redwood Mountain Sequoia Grove, the High Sierra and Kings Canyon will leave you breathless!

The trailhead starts off at the scenic Generals Highway in Sequoia Kings Canyon National Park.  There is a vehicle fee to enter the park.  The trail head offers a small parking area which is located across from a lookout.  

Near the start of the trail notice the three large boulders to your left.  As you continue you will cross exposed granite bedrock.  The wild flowers were very abundant in early summer.  You will continue a gradual ascent as you hike around the east side of the peak.

Follow the cairns as you make your way to the summit.  The summit offers 360 views and is spectacular.
