Great views!

It's all in the name! Panoramic Point is definitely a great place to take pictures! Beautiful views and you can see Hume lake from this location. A nice little hike!

You'll drive your way up to the point via a winding road. Once at they top you walk up the path and be able to see for miles. Ono trees, just great long vistas. We were able to see the start of a Forrest fire and watch helicopters drop water.

We were just meandering along the Wolverton Cutoff, and then suddenly this huge panoramic view popped up to our right. We went to investigate, and we then thought that this was Eagle View, because Panoramic Point wasn't on the map! It was so breathtaking.

Spectacular view of the Sierra Nevada mountains and Lake Hume. Quiet, peaceful spot where people go to watch the sunset over Lake Hume. Better spot for full sunset is the Vista Point around the bend from the John Muir Lodge. Panoramic Point is a great place to go to enjoy the view and quietness. It is a 1/4 mile hike... More

As far as view point go this must be one of the better. With a map to tell what peas one sees it makes the experience even better.

In the Grant Grove area there is a short drive leading up to this point. The road is curvy but scenic. There are some trails up here too. The views are great as well.

This trail was at the end of a windy, narrow road, and the trail had very few other people. I sat on a bench and listened to the birds without hearing people talking! The trail is paved, making it an easy hike, and the scenery is gorgeous as well. Definitely worth going off the beaten path for this one!

After visiting Yosemite and other pars of Kings Canyon/Sequoia, I didn't think the view was worth the drive. It was a long narrow road to get to the parking area and a short hike on paved path to the viewpoint. There were better ways to spend that time.

Gives you an OK view but nothing spectacular. Tried to hike up but the trails are overgrown. Don't worry about missing.

This is a bit of a steep climb but it it so worth it. Beware of all the other tourists that are coming to get that peefect picture as well. It gets quite crowded but it is worth the wait!
