Whom ever posted about using the recording feature in this app because the trail could be hard to find at times WAS NOT LYING. More than one choice of left or right, both tracks being obviously used but only one direction is correct. I always go off grid with a real GPS and an InReach, but we weren’t the only people to find themselves on the wrong trail. Weird cult feeling at some Glamping area just after you start feeling like you’re in the Jennie Lakes Wilderness you signed into, but no banjo music. It was a nice hike. Had I known there was a dirt road in I might’ve brought my beater truck 4x4, but we weren’t the only sedan that got to the trailhead.

The total hike was 6.6 miles and 1158 ft. of elevation. The trail itself wasn’t anything special. It was often difficult to follow so AllTrails was indispensable. It was also dusty and all the creeks were dry. But the payoff is the vista point at the end of the trail. Spectacular, amazing, breathtaking, stunning. Keep on walking because it is sooooooo worth it. I plan on doing this again in the spring. On a sad note, we passed the site where the last CA grizzly was killed in the 1920’s on our drive to the trailhead.

First to Review

This is an up and down hike to a viewpoint over Kings Canyon. It took 2 hours with stops to photograph wildflowers. The trail has some overgrown brush but it is easy to follow the trail markers.
