Putnam and Snowslide Canyons Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"While most Sierra hikers sit at home and eagerly await the snowfree months of summer, a few resourceful souls enjoy the year-round pleasures of the foothills zone in the southwest corner of Sequoia National Park. The 2-mile hike to Putnam Canyon and 3.25-mile hike to Snowslide Canyon on the Garfield-Hockett Trail provide fine opportunities for early and late season forays into the frontcountry, when the majority of higher trails are buried in snow. This trip passes through foothills woodland to Putnam Canyon and then continues through mixed coniferous forest with a smattering of giant sequoias. Fine views of Homers Nose and Dennison Peak provide visual delights along the way."
