Kendall Garden Katwalk Trail

Kendall Garden Katwalk Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This is a popular bit of the Pacific Crest Trail 2000, climbing from forest to heather meadows, and in between rich flower fields on the steep side of Kendall Peak. The trail immediately enters cool forest and you are hiking in pristine, old-growth forest.

Here is a place you should watch your step and forget those interesting, tiny plants tucked in cracks above the trail. The trail generally is wide and safe enough for a pack horse, but do not attempt it if a snowbank blocks the way. There has been at least one fatality caused by a person trying to cross a snowbank here. Once you are safely across, the vegetation ranges from storm-shaped trees, heather, and blueberries to patches of flowers."

This is definitely not a 5 star hike. Maybe 3 stars. Very nice view at the Katwalk but it is 6 miles up through the forest to get there. The Gardens are wild flowers on the side of a rock slide, not a meadow. Only a C+ Hike
