“Rough road”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

After paying $10 to go through the gate we discovered that the road was all torn up and barely passable in places.

“The open road”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

It was under repair from what I understand in the summer. While we were there only parts were under construction but it did not hamper our drive at all. You would be a fool to try to drive up here in the high tourist season. The roads are narrow and to get anywhere you have to drive 45+ to fast for these roads in my opinion. The turnouts are well planned and we enjoyed our drive in late September after the crowds had thinned.

“What a Beautiful Drive!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

You can enjoy the Giant Sequoias and breathtaking views on this lovely drive thru Sequoia National Park without even leaving your vechical. You can go two diferent ways, from Fresno go up Hyway 180 to Hyway 198; or from Visalia go up Hyway 198 and come out Hyway 180; either way is spectacular . This entire trip can take you only 4 hours if you make no stops.

“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!
