However, after reading some reviews of the Generals Highway I'm starting to have second thoughts as they are scaring me a little!
If there is still snow around in mid-May, what will the main road be like? I'll be in a hire car so won't have winter tyres, snow chains etc. And just how scary is the road? Being from England, im not used to driving on the right, so with the amount of twists and turns and sheer drops, it does worry me a bit. And my wife is quite a bad passenger for these kind of things too!
If I went the longer way round and came in and out via the 180, would that miss the worst of the roads? It seems the worst is between the Three Rivers and General Sherman? Is that right?
And if I decided to skip General Sherman and just do around Grant Grove, would that miss basically all of the difficult roads?
Thanks for your help
