Tule River to Eastside Trail Loop Professional Review and Guide
"A scenic low-elevation loop day hike among the world’s largest trees with numerous short, steep ups and downs. Streams can be dangerous during spring runoff. This hike wanders along the border of Mountain Home State Forest and the Golden Trout Wilderness, upon which is superimposed Giant Sequoia National Monument. Don’t be too concerned about the tangle of government agencies that administer the area; the trail itself is usually clear enough. The terrain it traverses resembles Paul Bunyan’s washboard with numerous short, steep ups and downs, in and out of ravines cut by numerous creeks plunging down to meet the Tule River in a series of cascades and waterfalls. These can be dangerous to ford during the high point of spring snowmelt."
