The High Sierra Trail makes a wonderful introduction to the backcountry wilderness of Sequoia National Park. Any number of shorter or longer trips can be taken along this trail, but Hamilton Lake, 17 miles into the trail, is the perfect destination to take in all the splendor that this section of the park has to offer. Wildlife is abundant, from smaller rodents such as squirrels and marmots, to larger mammals like mule deer and black bear. The myriad stream and creek crossings along the way are home to many insects and birds.
