White Chief Canyon

White Chief Canyon Professional Review and Guide

"All trails in the Mineral King area are blessed with fantastic scenery, and the White Chief Trail is no exception. Visitors will experience wonderful vistas, delightful meadows, and off-trail routes to exquisite lakes. To top it off, this trip offers caves, a rare feature in the area. Some of the caves are naturally occurring stone caverns, while others are mines—all are potentially dangerous. Hikers with caving or spelunking on their agenda should contact the rangers in Mineral King before embarking on an adventure into one of the caves. Additionally, some of the mines are private property, requiring the owner’s permission for entrance."
