  • Just a short hike up, less than 2 miles (for sea level dwellers, the altitude is not that bad, relatively speaking). Views are great - we had a pretty clear day. Take binoculars if you have them...

  • Like almost every scenic proposition in Kings Sequoia, the payoff is in the vista - so check the air quality before you go. I went with the pollution so bad that the mountain ranges were grey ghosts....  more

  • We discovered one of our favorite spots! The trailhead was just across of the street of the “ little baldy saddle” sign. Just park on the street. High elevation and elevation gain about 800 made us slower hikers. But it paid off to see marmots, deers, chipmunks, sooty grouses and misc birds. Lots hikers who passed us didn’t see them when they hiked up quickly. We saw those in less than 10 feet from the trails and some were just next to us. The views on the top were beautiful! We will be back next time when we visit Sequoia.
  • A must! One of the prettiest hikes I've done in Sequoia, so far. It's a short, but still challenging hike up to the top. The trail is beautiful, with some shaded areas, and incredible views from the top! I did big baldy the same day and the views up on little baldy were much better. I got there at noon on Sunday June 21st and it wasn't too busy. There's no parking lot, you will have to pull over on the side of general's hwy and park.
