The road to Mineral King is now open for public use. This is the final road to open for the summer 2018 season. Users can now access the northwestern most tip of the Golden Trout Wilderness via Farewell Gap. When entering into the wilderness, you’ll have to pay for a permit through the National Park Service. Permit fees are generally based on your trip’s starting point. Since Mineral King is within the National Park Service jurisdiction, you will have to obtain a permit there. This is a great access point to some very geologically unique areas, water falls, high elevation lakes of the Golden Trout Wilderness. Depending on the time of year, it can be great for photography.
