Spring may be the best time to take the trail up Middle Fork Kaweah River. The trail is likely to be free of snow, and mild temperatures, colorful wildflowers, and a swollen river will combine for a fine vernal journey. No matter what the season, stunning views of Moro Rock, Castle Rocks, and the Great Western Divide provide excellent scenery. Good campsites near Panther Creek offer an opportunity for an off-season backpacking trip as well, with the possibility of extending the trip farther up the Middle Fork.
