Park Ridge Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"This hike first gives you a breathtaking view of the Monarch and Great Western Divides at Panoramic Point, then brings you to another spectacular view at one of the few lookout towers still occasionally staffed in the park."

"This pleasant loop uses a hiking trail and a fire road to access one of the few remaining fire lookouts in the Sierra. Hikers are to excellent views, not only at the lookout of the Great Western Divide and San Joaquin Valley (when haze permits), but also near the trailhead at Panorama Point, where visitors can marvel at the extraordinary vista of numerous Sierra summits. Alternating between mixed forest and open clearings, the route is gently graded, following Park Ridge from the trailhead all the way to the lookout."

"The Park Ridge Trail begins near Panoramic Point, a 7,520-foot overlook with benches and an interpretive display of the peaks and valleys. From the overlook are views of the Middle and South Forks of Kings Canyon, Hume Lake, the Sierra Crest and the Great Western Divide. The trail follows the crest of the ridge to Park Ridge Fire Lookout, an active lookout at 7,540 feet."
