Deadman Canyon Backpack Loop Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This semiloop backpack trip from Lodgepole to the Giant Forest delves through the backcountry of Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks, building by slow degrees to a grand climax of a High Sierra crossing at Elizabeth Pass, and winding down again with another gradual passage down the north wall of the Kaweah River. Glacier-carved cliffs and mountains, deep canyons, wildlife, and giant sequoias—this hike has it all."
