This multiday backpack trip up Kaweah Canyon offers inspiring views of the Great Western Divide and makes an ideal off-season excursion. The trail is well maintained, but Moro, Panther, and Mehrten Creeks are not bridged and must be forded. This can be very dangerous during periods of heavy runoff during winter and spring.
