Deer Cove Trail Professional Review and Guide
"The nearly forgotten Deer Cove Trail within Monarch Wilderness offers hikers an opportunity to escape the crowds in the neighboring park on a relatively short ascent to a vantage point offering pleasant views of Monarch Divide and Kings Canyon. The low elevation and south-facing hillsides combine to make this a good early or late season trip. Summer hikers will have to get a very early start to beat the heat. Although a network of trails penetrates deep into the Monarch Wilderness beyond, they receive very little maintenance and may be difficult to follow."
