If you read my previous post, you’d know that my trip to Mammoth Lakes got canceled. In desperate need of a hike and hiking buddies, I rounded up some coworkers (Thuan, Fred, Rachell, Sam & Alan) for a quick hike! We originally planned to do Weaver Lake Trail, but decided to do Little Baldy Trail instead.
Little Baldy is a granite dome located in the heart of Sequoia National Park. The trailhead is located off the side of a road, just a mile south of Dorst Campground. This area of the park isn’t as busy and the trailhead was very easy to find! We started the hike past eight and made it to the top in two hours. The views at the top were beyond amazing. After taking photos, we just sat on the rock, ate some snacks and talked about life.
When we got back down, we made a quick stop along the swimming holes by the Hospital Rock Campground. The campground was already marked closed for the fall/winter season, but we still managed to sneak in to get to the swimming hole. I’m not one to jump into cold water, but I jumped into the little swimming hole we came across. The water was way too cold but it made for a fun experience.
After hanging out by the water, we exited the park and stopped by Sierra Subs, located in the city of Three Rivers, where I got to enjoy a good ole rueben sandwich. Afterwards, we called it a day! Until the next adventure!
