If you have managed the road up, then enjoy. Just cover the undercarriage of your vehicle if you spend the night. This is God's Country, and you really don't appreciate it, if you have to read a review of Farewell Gap or Big Arroyo, or even Silver City. Stay home.

Fabulous vistas, great hiking trails, amazing fall colors, the Sierra at its best. The road in is slow and twisty but managable. The campground at Atwell Mill is a gem. The pies at the Cafe at Silver City are the best. But the Mineral King Valley is the star!

If you don't like curvy, narrow, no shoulder roads... stay home. Great views. Before the end is a private resort called Silver City. If they are open stop for pie. Great coffee too. We tried a trail at the end of the road but it wasn't well marked.

We really enjoyed the scenic and almost deserted drive to Silver City in Mineral King Valley. A beautiful, cool mountain retreat.
