Turn right just before you get to John Muir Lodge, down a little paved, unmarked road, that you wonder whether or not is the right road. The winding road takes you to Panoramic Point-an almost complete view of the mountains and valley-a true panorama. Nice picnic tables (we had lunch) rest rooms, newer paved trails to the top. (kinda steep but with switchbacks). And a beautiful view in front of you. We went during the day, but I'm betting this would be a great place to see the sunset or the stars. Kinda out of the way, but worth the time to find it.
