Approaching by way of the rugged canyon of the San Joaquin River and surrounded by a host of jagged summits, this trail delves into the secluded heart of Kings Canyon's northern wilderness - the lush, green parkland of Evolution Valley. All overnight backpackers must obtain a wilderness permit from the ranger station. Campfire permits are required for the national forest. No fires are allowed in King Canyon National Park above 10,000 feet. Note: Ferry takes you to trailhead and makes several scheduled trips per day, conditions permitting. A radio on the eastern shore allows you to call for additional service. If you bypass the ferry and take the connector trail, you will add another 4 miles to your trip, in each direction. The late-season drop in the reservoir level may affect ferry service. The Muir Trail Ranch does not encourage visits from non-guests.
