“Great view of Kings Canyon”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

It is located in the north end of the park and accessible by a narrow two way road. You can hike there also, I believe it was less than a mile uphill. Although the road is narrow it is not like other roads with a steep drop into a valley below.

“Great View!”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

On weekends,this road is closed at 5 PM and you have to take the shuttle which i think would be a pain and crowded. We timed it just right and got in right when it opened up to cars and got to the top, did the short walk and had a nice uncrowded vista.

“Easy hike”
Reviewed July 18, 2013 via mobile

This nicely paved short hike leads to a wonderful view. The drive up to the point is beautiful and not real busy. The drive takes you past some of the rental cabins and the John Muir Lodge.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

The view truly is panoramic and extends to the main high ridge of the Sierra Nevada. An easy uphill walk from the parking area.

“Great View!”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

Short hike from the parking lot, paved trail, If I remember it right the distance just over/under 350 yards, a little up hill but the view is awsome. After the Panoramic Point our group did some more hiking toward the fire look out,(I believe it is 5 miles round trip), we did not complete the whole trail to the end but it was fun and the view was beautiful on the sunny day. There was a couple who went all the way to the fire look out satation told us that, the ranger there allow you to go up to the tower and talk about how they spot the forest fire...
