  • Climb to the Wasson Peak, with nice views.

    Turn left on Sweetwater. At the crossing with King Canyon turn right uphill.
    At the crossing to Wasson Peak turn right.

    The trail is well marked and in good shape.
    No shade on this hike and the climb is a lot harder with higher temperatures.
    In early May 2009 we started in the low 70 and ended in the middle 90's

    There is no fee on this parking lot, as the trail starts outside the park.
