Started the Sugar Pine Trail at the Crescent Meadow parking lot heading toward Moro Rock. The first part of the trail you pass through an area that looks like it has been through a fire. There are a number of downed tress, but allot of new growth that is five to ten feet tall. The trail traverses over and through massive granite rocks and slabs. This might be part of the foundation of Moro Rock . You travel down the trail .5 mile and then cross over Crescent Creek and commence an upward climb to Bobcat Point. There are wonderful views of Moro Rock through the trees along the trail. Once you reach Bobcat Point the area opens up and you have unobstructed views of Moro Rock and the Middle Fork of Kaweah River. After checking out the views you resume your upward climb and meet up with the High Sierra Trail. You turn left and return to Crescent Meadows parking lot. If you were to turn right onto the High Sierra trail, you could also see Eagle View, another wonderful spot to see splendid view of the area. It might be recommend to take this hike in the winter when the heat induced haze and smog are greatly reduced.
