This trail/drive never gets old. We drive it several times a year making sure to go at least once during each season. It offers many pull overs to take in the views. Great photo opportunities!! It offers many trail heads for hiking. There is a pull over with plenty parking and restrooms half way through the drive.

One of the most scenic drives east of the Rockies. There are views all the way. What a great Father's Day diversion!
