Sugar Pine Trail Professional Review and Guide
"This trek through a sugar pine forest takes you past bedrock mortars used by Native Americans to a couple of nice overlooks above the Middle Fork of the Kaweah River. Bird watchers may see many species along the trail.The trail heads steeply downhill from the trailhead, then levels out in a dry, shrubby area before reentering the woods. You will see very large pinecones—some may even be a foot long—from the sugar pines for which this trail is named. Pass former overlooks that are no longer in use because the trees have grown and now block the views. The pathway dips to an area lush with dogwoods, thimbleberries, and ferns, then crosses a small tributary of Crescent Creek."
