Ascent Trip Report

I parked at the Panoramic Point parking lot approx. 3 miles from Grant Grove Village. A well maintained pedestrian walkway leads in 200 yards to the magnificent sweep of Sierra peaks from Panoramic Point (7,520'). Among the peaks I could identify were Spanish Mountain, The Obelisk, Mt. Goddard, Mt. Brewer, Thunder Mountain, Table Mountain, and Milestone Mountain. From Panoramic Point a good, relatively level trail heads south along Park Ridge, dropping down to a fire road which continues to the L.O. The Park Ridge trail continues south from the fire road at a well signed junction where trails from Wilsonia and Grant Village converge. There isn't much of a view from the area around the L.O., which was unattended today. About 5 miles RT
