Trail of the Sequoias Professional Review and Guide
"This hike is a long extension of the Congress Trail, traveling all the way to the Crescent Meadow area and back, with a good chance for bear sightings.Begin this ramble by following the left fork of the Congress Trail (Hike 13) for 1.1 miles to the junction with the Trail of the Sequoias. Make a left, taking the signed trail uphill to the Chief Sequoyah Tree, named in honor of a Cherokee Indian who developed a phonetic alphabet for his tribe. Proceed up the ridge, passing through tunnels in two fallen sequoias along the way. After topping the rise, the trail descends slightly to a step crossing of fledgling Crescent Creek at 2.3 miles."
