Can anyone recommend a particular snowshoe route accessed from the west side of Sequoia/Kings Canyon?
We are intermediate levels snowshoers in excellent shape. Orienteering experience. But would prefer to stay on a trail.
A loop among the Sequoias would be nice. An alpine venture with views of higher peaks could be even nicer. But I'm sure the Mineral King road is closed.
How is the route towards Pear Lake in the winter? (Would want to avoid The Watchtower version, if that is even an option...one of our people is scared of heights.)
Trail going to an overlook of Kings Canyon?

I've always enjoyed the trip up to Panther Gap. Fairly straightforward route with a fantastic view at the end. Depending upon the conditions you might be able to continue on towards Alta. If I recall correctly the route up and over the hump towards Pear lake can get steep in places.
