“Spectacular Fall Folliage”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

We greatly enjoyed the drive through the mountains and seeing all the fantastic red, orange, and yellow leaves backdropped by the dark green leaves that hadn't turned yet. An autumn visit along this highway with stops to enjoy the views and breath the fresh air is highly recommended.

“Great views”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

Brilliant, helped by the weather and the right time in the season. We had clear blue sky to view the fall colours at their best, and this road is set out to allow you to enjoy those views, good parking spaces for some great viewing spots.

“Breath Taking views!”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

The road is awesome, esp. if you are on a motorcycle! There are plenty of places to pull off. The best time is the fall when all the color is displayed on the mountains.

“Great walking and hiking opportunities”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

This is a lovely drive through winding mountain passes. There are several scenic viewpoints and some nice hikes, including shorter walks. I highly recommend the walk to Greely Ponds. The walk is fairly flat and not hugely popular, so often you will have the trail to yourself. Upper Greely Pond is lovely and has a small gritty sand beach at one end. A lovely peaceful place for a picnic.
