Beetle Rock is nothing spectacular: it's basically a tiny granite dome with a nice view of the Middle Fork Canyon and the Foothills. You can't see any snowcapped peaks or lakes from here, but the 200-yard or so walk from the Giant Forest Museum Parking Area is easy and accessible for just about anyone, so there's no point in not going. From the rock, you get views of the Kaweah Canyon, the foothills, and the San Joaquin Valley. However, sometimes it gets smoggy in the area, and you can't see anything. Industrial pollution from San Francisco and Los Angeles pour into the San Joaquin Valley, obscuring views on summer days. Also, there are wildflowers around the rock.
