“Just what you might have imagined.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Great views winding through the mountains and alongside the river. Cuts half an hour off the old route.

“Don't miss this, if you have a car.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Absolutely beautiful. Drive slowly and stop frequently to enjoy. Although the parkway is across the river from the Trans-Can, you are in a completely different world.
