The Panoramic Point Interpretive Trail is a 0.67 mile accessible loop trail winding through a lovely mixed conifer forest to a panoramic overlook point. The trailhead is in the Stone Creek Campground area of the park near campsite #14, off State Route 243. The surface is compacted aggregate and soil. There are several armored crossings on the trail that water flows over the trail during rain events that might be challenging for some users. The majority of the trail has slopes of 5% to 8% with intermittent sections with slopes less than 5% and up to 12% for drainage crossings. This trail has panels with many touchable elements and an audio tour (downloadable) that should make it more useful to persons with low vision and others. The audio tour is available for download here: Panorama Point Audio Tour. There are two accessible parking spaces available at the trail entrance and accessible restrooms in the campground. .
