Description

Want to see Kings Canyon, Hume Lake, and the High Sierra all in one view? Then make the 0.5/0.75 mile highly accessible hike after a long winding drive up to the Panoramic Point Trail. The handicap-accessible viewpoint is great but push yourself a little further for an even better view.

This viewpoint is a must-stop location for golden hour photography.

Short Walk: A mostly paved trail from a parking lot.

Family Friendly: A short and paved path with bathrooms and a picnic area by parking lot.

Gem Type: Viewpoint
