Bench Valley Lakes

Bench Valley Lakes Professional Review and Guide

"This trip traverses the lush, forested meadows surrounding Corral Mountain and offers sweeping vistas of granite domes along North Fork Kings River. The path then ascends through serene meadows carpeted in wildflowers to the stark alpine beauty of the Bench Valley basin. The many small lakes and cliffs in this hanging valley offer fishing, rock climbing, and rich alpenglow at sunset. Since most of the trail follows marked, easy terrain, this trip makes a great choice for a longer yet moderate outing."
