Bobcat Point Loop

Bobcat Point Loop Professional Review and Guide

"Crescent Meadow is a busy hub of activity on a typical summer day, with a bevy of tourists picnicking, sightseeing, or strolling along the nearby paths. Despite the minimal distance, this trip, combining the Bobcat Point and Sugar Pine Trails, leads away from the crowds. You won’t see flower-filled meadows or towering sequoias on this loop, but you will have incredible views of Middle Fork Kaweah River canyon, Moro Rock, and Castle Rocks from the viewpoints of Kaweah Vista and Bobcat Point."

"This hike leads to Kaweah Vista and Bobcat Point, two stunning overlooks on the rim of the 3,000-foot deep Middle Fork Kaweah River canyon. On the return, the hike crosses two groups of bedrock mortars, where Indians ground acorns and seeds into meal."

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.
