    I absolutely LOVE this trail. Although I must admit I tend to maneuver my way between the trail and the creek itself. There is a wild population of beautiful Kern River Rainbow trout which are native to the area. Some say that they are a rare form Rainbow and Golden trout hybrids.

    The trail itself is a very clean and easy trail with some grades and twists to it. The terrain surrounding the tail could prove challenging as massive boulders and downed giant sequoias line the forest floor.

    For the outdoor enthusiast who enjoys cozy, private, and lush, setting, this is for you.

    Keep an eye out for the wildlife. Fish, Deer, snakes, birds, and playful rodents.
    I wouldn't be surprised if I ran into a velociraptor at some point.

    Please be respectful of nature, and if you are planning on stream stalking the wild trout, please catch and release as to not do any damage to the wild trout population.

    "The pristine Freeman Creek Grove of giant sequoias is well removed from the tourist circuit, treating hikers to the thrill of discovery. Straightforward and well maintained, the trail meets the first giant sequoias well within the first mile, and doles them out in generous helpings all along the way. Handsome, dignified, and well proportioned amidst other large conifers and robust foliage, they are more majestic in this setting than when you find them fenced and surrounded by shutterbugs. Our trail also treats us to views of castellated Hermit Rock (8, 465 feet), on a ridge 2. 5 miles to the north." Read more
