great view payoff from the top- go early and you'll have it to yourself!

The panoramic view + an additional mile beyond are worth it. The fire lookout was lame with no views

The only good views are at the very beginning but the rest of the hike was kind of "meh". A bonus though is we see no other people on the hike.

Beautiful trail with a paved section leading up to an awesome overview of the mountains. The Trail then continues as a dirt trail but is well maintained

Great trail on a beautiful ridge. A couple awesome vistas. About 20% shade.

Quick, easy, and beautiful trail. Maybe 1/2 a mile total, out and back trail with, you guessed it, a panoramic view at the top! Paved trail, easy for young kids!

Beautiful hike from panoramic point (breathtaking) to the fire lookout. Took the trail out then the access road back. Came across a black bear on our way back to the car ~1/2 mile from the parking area.

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

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.
