Panoramic Point - Kings Canyon's Leading Lookout
Visit Panoramic Point for a bird's eye view of Kings Canyon. For an extra treat, hike to the Park Ridge Lookout tower and climb to the top!
Talk about a great view. Panoramic Point is a 7,520-foot overlook located northeast of Grant Grove. Accessible via a short drive (road open in summer only), Kings Canyon Panoramic Point offers benches where visitors can relax and gaze upon the area's stunning mountain peaks and valleys.
From Panoramic Point, take the 2.5-mile-long trail that follows a mountain ridge to the Park Ridge Fire Lookout. It’s an active lookout tower visitors can climb to the top of for even more impressive views – one that
encompasses the whale-shaped, fishing-friendly Hume Lake.
