We drove this route a couple of times across our stay in the area because we thoroughly enjoyed it and there are enough stops and overlooks to spread it out across a couple of days rather then doing it all in one go. We did visit during the government shut down which has been effecting the stops - restrooms are closed and bins are locked shut in the National Forest stops - say Westgate Overlook and Iagro Springs. Absolutely amazing views especially of the fall colours so taking a camera with you is a must! The drive down to Cooke Dam is certainly worth it and has to be one of my favorite stops along the drive - the river is so peaceful there and the views are delightful.
