Just north of the Glacier Divide, which forms the north boundary of Kings Canyon National Park, is a large, lake-dotted alpine basin rivaling any in the High Sierra for sweeping beauty. You will spend most of the effort required to reach such mountain splendor on a moderate, 4.6-mile climb along a well-maintained trail to 11,423-foot Piute Pass.
