The Sierra Heritage Scenic Byway (Highway 168) is the main access to Huntington Lake. This route ties the Sierra Nevada with eight foothill and mountain communities, climbing from the San Joaquin Valley in Old Town Clovis to the 9,200-foot Kaiser Pass at White Bark Vista. There, one can view the Kaiser, Dinkey Lakes, Ansel Adams and John Muir Wilderness areas.
The byway route to Kaiser Pass is about 70 miles and round trip driving time is about four hours. Narrow, winding approach roads prohibit access by large motor homes and trailers beyond Huntington Lake. White Bark Vista is located along a rough, one-mile long dirt road off Kaiser Pass Road.
White Bark Vista features spectacular views of the Sierra Crest, Florence and Edison Lakes. While the access road is suitable only for high clearance vehicles, those traveling in passenger cars or vans may park near the beginning of the road and take a pleasant two-mile round-trip hike to the vista.
