Mitchell Peak Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"This trip takes you to a spectacular 360-degree vista on top of a windswept 10,365-foot peak, the site of a former fire lookout tower. The Forest Service trail, FS 30E43, follows an abandoned logging road for just a few feet before abruptly turning south"

"Mitchell Peak, straddling the border between Jennie Lakes Wilderness and Kings Canyon National Park, provides one of the finest viewpoints accessible to hikers on the west side of the area. Seemingly, such a grand vista would attract hordes of devotees, but the summit sees few visitors."

"This trip takes you to a spectacular 360-degree vista on top of a windblown 10,365-foot peak."
