This spot has great views of the Sierras. The road up to the lookout is winding. There is ample parking. There are similar views from many of the road turn offs, butt this is a great place to go at night to see the stars....More

Panorama Point can be reached by a short drive and brief walk. It has a handicapped accessible trail as well as a regular trail. The view from the top is awesome, especially early and late in the day.

Such a magnificent vista! Anyone in the Great Sequoia National Park would be so foolish to miss this! We lived it. Such a brilliant place to get those wow factor photos to show those folks at home! But to me, it's not about the pictures,...More

This is a relatively short drive up to Park Ridge from the Grant Grove headquarters area. The road there is half the fun, switchbacking past beautiful meadows filled with flowers. There's a parking area at the top and a pretty steep little trail from there....More
