Route Description for Eagle and Bobcat Loop Hike
Those seeking a short, easy-going outdoor adventure in the Sequoia National Park will enjoy the Eagle and Bobcat Loop Trail. Explore a swathe of wilderness occupied with lush meadows, towering giant sequoias, mixed conifers, and stunning High Sierra overlooks. Note this area sees plenty of traffic, so for those seeking a more tranquil experience, we encourage you to explore in the early morning or late evening. Make sure to charge your camera before heading out—the views from the lookouts are postcard perfect. The park charges an entrance fee of $35USD per vehicle or $20USD per person for pedestrians or cyclists.
Embark on your adventure along the Eagle and Bobcat Loop from the Crescent Meadow Loop Trailhead. Setting out from here, you will be guided north along the borders of the lush meadow. Soon after your departure from the trailhead, you will reach a junction; turn right onto the Tharp’s Log Trail. Wander this route past the Chimney Tree to Tharp’s Log. Explore the rustic cabin, then merge onto the Log Meadow Loop and then onto the Trail of the Sequoias.
At the trail’s end, turn left onto the High Sierra Trail to the Eagle View. Revel in the panoramic scenes of the Great Western Divide, then retrace your footing to the intersection, following the High Sierra Trail before merging onto the Bobcat Point Trail. Enjoy another amazing lookout over the Sierra Nevada Mountains, then turn right onto the Sugar Pine Trail—follow this path back to the trailhead.
