Park Ridge Trail Panoramic Point to Park Ridge Fire Lookout is a 5 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Dunlap, California that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from May until November.
Hiked the trail in early December. Nobody else was on the hike. It's actually a road but had about 6" of snow on it. Beautiful views at the top and the fact that we did not see a single other person was a huge plus.
Very easy "hike" on pavement, Decent view of Kings Canyon & it's many mountain tops. Not busy either
Nice hike with good views of Hume Lake and portions of the Kings Canyon.
This is one of the few decent trails you can hike at tis time due to the closures of the park from the Rough Fire. You have to sneak behind the Grant Grove Store and drive to Panorama Point. From there the hike is beautiful. Some up and down and you cross the forest service road that essentially parallels the trail two times. Fortunate rainy weather caused us to turn around just shy of the fire lookout station as our visibility became almost zero and it was getting cold fast. Some spectacular views of the valley below. Only saw one other person on the trail.
Fun Trail, I Enjoyed it !!
