The Southern Sierra Sights

Minaret Vista

  • Geological Site

Updated 05/08/2015

Fodor's Review

The glacier-carved sawtooth spires of the Minarets, the remains of an ancient lava flow, are best viewed from the Minaret Vista. Pull off the road, park your car in the visitors' viewing area, and walk along the path, which has interpretive signs explaining the spectacular peaks, ridges, and valleys beyond.
