Mineral King Topo Map
Mineral King Valley is inside the southern portion of SEQUOIA NATIONAL PARK. Mountain passes access high Sierra terrain (only by foot trail) w/ Sequoia National Park, Kings Canyon Highcountry and Golden Trout Wilderness.
The paved road access into this canyon (Mineral King Road) does become a dirt road for a few miles, about half way in. Pavement resumes and continues to the end – where the trailhead parking and campground is situated. Numerous creeks flow through this mountain region.
backpacking & campground camping –
This spectacular mountain setting is quite different from the rest of the Sequoia National Park. Backpackers can arrive late and sleep at the walk-in camps of Cold Springs Campground.
Access to high elevation trailheads; alpine lakes and Golden Trout Wilderness Area. Day hikes, horseback rides, fishing, mountaineering routes are plentiful.
However, bears and marmots are a problem here. Store food in the steel bear boxes provided. Marmots will eat radiator hoses and chew wiring inside your vehicle. Bring a roll of chicken wire to wrap your automobile, if you plan to leave it unattended for any amount of time.
Additionally, evening ranger programs are presented in summer months.
