    Route Description for Huckleberry and Alta Loop Hike

    Get outside into the fresh air and explore the Giant Forest Grove along the Huckleberry and Alta Loop Hike. Easy-going and incredibly scenic, this family-friendly route is a crowd favorite. If you are seeking a more tranquil experience, then we encourage you to head out in the early morning or late evening. Accessible in the off-season alike, you may need a pair of snowshoes in the winter months. Note entrance to the park costs $35USD per vehicle or $20USD per person for pedestrians or cyclists.

    Setting out from the Giant Forest Museum, the Huckleberry and Alta Loop follows the Alta Trail southeast. Soon after your departure from the trailhead, you will cross over a seasonal creek before confronting an intersection with the Huckleberry Trail. Here, keep right onto the Huckleberry Trail, climbing up into the dense communities of sequoias in the Giant Forest Grove. After passing Huckleberry Meadow, turn left onto the Washington Tree Trail past Circle Meadow and back onto the Alta Trail.

    Follow the Alta Trail through the woodlands and back down the ridge. Wandering through the mixed woodlands, you will ultimately reconnect with the initial segment of Alta Trail. From here, simply retrace your footing along the path back to the trailhead.
