Panoramic Point and Park Ridge Lookout Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This fine trip begins with a short walk to the view-packed tourist destination of Panoramic Point, where visitors are treated to outstanding views of the Great Western Divide, Sierra Crest, and Monarch Divide.

From there, the pleasant loop combines a hiking trail and a fire road to access one of the few remaining operational fire lookouts in the Sierra, where hikers will have far fewer elbows to rub while admiring vistas of the Great Western Divide and San Joaquin Valley. Alternating between mixed forest and shrub-covered clearings, the route along Park
Ridge is fairly gently graded."
