“Great views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012 via mobile

A long winding road up the mountains with stunning views. Takes a couple of hours to reach the top but well worth the trip. You see lots of wildlife and maybe even bears! Just don't ride the brakes on the way back down!

“Great Scenery!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

I drive on General's Highway almost every weekend, and the view never gets old. The sight is gorgeous, especially once you get higher into the mountains. The only bad thing (which I believe is quite minor) is some parts of Generals Highway is so windy that it may make you feel dizzy or sick.

“a feat of civil engineering - with delays”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

We liked being able to drive into and through the Sequoia National Park. The people who built the road must have been tough. We didn't like the roadworks which caused hold-ups of over twenty minutes on some otherwise short journeys. Maybe the height of the tourist season isn't the best time for resurfacing?

“Sierra National Park”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

Major construction going on right now. Talk to visitors centers. It's important to time your drive right or else delays could be an hour or so.
