Detailed Product Description
National Park Service, Sequoia-Kings Canyon National Park, 1983. Approx 65 pages, photos, maps, some fold out.  Tall softcover, bound with long staples. Condition is Fine, no flaws, no deterioration, no writing.

Minerla King in the est side of the High Sierra in California became part of the Sequoia Kings Canyon National Park in 1978. In 1982 the NPS researched the future of the Mineral King Valley, which had some silver mining, and houses about 62 private cabins.

This report leans in the direction that no major changes should occur in Mineral King, and the cabins can be grand-fathered in.

Mineral King has excellent facilities for hiking, but not much in rock climbing.

Wikipedia on Mineral King:

Mineral King is a subalpine glacial valley located in the southern part of Sequoia National Park, in the U.S. state of California. The valley lies at the headwaters of the East Fork of the Kaweah River, which rises at the eastern part of the valley and flows northwest. Accessed by a long and narrow winding road, the valley is mostly popular with backpackers and hikers.

Historically, the valley was inhabited by the Yokuts tribe. In the 1870s, silver was discovered on the slopes of a mountain overlooking Mineral King. Mineral King Road was built in 1873 and was gradually improved throughout the early 20th century.

On September 19, 1966, Walt Disney Productions announced the plans to build a ski resort called "Disney's Mineral King Ski Resort" in the valley. It was stopped after lengthy opposition by preservationists, including the Sierra Club.  In 1978, the valley became part of Sequoia National Park.

The name Mineral King also refers to the historic mining camps and towns in and near the valley, including Silver City and Cabin Cove. The settlements as a whole are referred to as the Mineral King Road Cultural Landscape, and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2003.
