What a trip! This is a must do drive! We saw wildlife and beauty everywhere!! The bears were out playing in the trees near the road. Words cannot describe the beauty or vastness of this drive through Sequoia National Park.

This is an amazing drive to take. We were there in October and the colors were incredible. The drive connects the two parks and the scenery along the way is unlike any other. Please allow plenty of time because the road is narrow and winding....More
If you are afraid of open spaces and high ledges, then close your eyes (only if you are a passenger) as you travel this rather lengthy road. We took it to get to the Wuksachi Lodge. We exited the park heading towards Three Rivers. What...More
Drove CA 180, Generals Highway in the parks, from Three Rivers to Big Stump during late September. What an awesome drive!! Took several side roads (RV size restricted) to a variety of park attractions. It is approximately 40 miles of "s" curves through the forest...More
For the motorcyclists, this is a great ride. The road surface is good, plenty of tight corners & hairpins, along with amazing scenery. Having a Go Pro or similar is an advantage. Allow good time to take in the stops and viewpoints.

We were there in September, 2017 and stayed at the Montecito Sequoia Lodge and Family Camp and loved it. Your meals and activities are included in the price and the food is very good with plenty of choices at every meal, including healthy options. It is located in a great location to be able to get to all the sights relative quickly without sitting in long lines along the way. No televisions in the rooms and not very good cell phone reception, but you don't really need it. If you need a great place to stay in Yosemite, the Yosemite Valley Lodge is right in the heart of everything, is a great place to stay, you won't be constantly fighting for a parking place because the shuttle comes to the lodge frequently and will take you anywhere you want to go in the valley. Just avoiding the long lines in and out of the park daily is well worth any extra cost that you might incur staying here!
I would say yes, but hopefully you have an experienced driver. :) The switchback curves can get tight, especially with on-coming traffic. We took a 12-passenger Ford Transit up Pike's Peak and over the Beartooth Hwy in... More
I would say yes, but hopefully you have an experienced driver. :) The switchback curves can get tight, especially with on-coming traffic. We took a 12-passenger Ford Transit up Pike's Peak and over the Beartooth Hwy in Montana this summer, and it worked. It's just scary on all of these highways (including parts of Sequoia) because many places have no guard rails and the roads aren't very wide. The transit was nice because of the big windows; everyone got a great view, and we even took pics out of the windows. Helpful hint just in case: My family had seasick bands that we wore so we didn't get car sick with all the winding.
