"Granite Basin is a gently sloping bowl filled with scenic tarns and flower-bedecked meadows, accessed by a steep and usually scorching ascent from the floor of Kings Canyon. Successful backpackers can recuperate along the pine-dotted shore of Granite Lake or beside a bevy of tarns scattered across the picturesque basin. Anglers will find fishing in the basin’s streams and lakes a fitting challenge."
--Mike White, Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks: Your Complete Hiking Guide (Wilderness Press).
