Mineral King Loop, Sequoia National Park

Kristen Bor is one of my favourite hiking bloggers.

Her site is called Bearfoot Theory. Highly recommended.

Kristen recommends an adventure in the southern Sierra Nevada mountains of California.

Is backpacking the Mineral King loop in Sequoia National Park on your bucket list? …

This was hands down one of the most incredible backpacking trips we’ve been on and is easily some of the best backpacking in the Sierra Nevada.

Our 44-mile route out of Mineral King went over Timber Gap and exited via Sawtooth Pass, with a portion of the trip following the High Sierra Trail.

It took us 6-days, but if you don’t have that much time, we also suggest a shorter alternative loop that covers a lot of the same ground.
