Middle Fork Kaweah River Trail follows alongside the river through a steeply sided canyon that is littered with wildflowers in the spring. It is mostly exposed to start with excellent open views of the canyon, Castle Rocks, and Moro Rock. There are several creek crossings along the trail which should be crossed with caution especially during periods of high runoff. It ends near Redwood Meadows, where there is a secluded sequoia grove. This is intended to be an overnight trip; contact Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park for required permits. There are designated camping spots along Buck Creek at 8 miles and where the trail terminates. son: April through June is best for water displays, but hardest for fords. September and October are best for fall colors. July and August can be uncomfortably hot. Nevertheless, the trail is open year-round to hikers, depending on your tolerance for local weather conditions.
