Park Ridge (USGS)
Located upslope from Grant Grove, the Park Ridge webcam is part of the Sierra Wildland Fire Reporting System. This webcam looks southwest across the Redwood Mountain Grove of giant sequoias to Big Baldy Ridge. Webcams and volunteers working in the historic lookout tower help spot and monitor smoke from fires in Kings Canyon National Park and the adjacent Sequoia National Forest. The site of Park Ridge Lookout was first used for fire detection in 1916.
Disclaimer: Displayed webcams are generally located on mountaintops which become inaccessible in winter. They frequently suffer from snowload and winter storms during the course of the winter and 1) fail to upload images, 2) get physically jostled and no longer aim where intended, or 3) the lenses get obscured with snow and ice. As the sites become accessible in spring (spring at 8,000 foot elevation!) they are maintained for the upcoming fire season.
