Phenomenal scenic drive. Drove this to and from when I hiked the Rae Lakes Loop and it did not disappoint! Great drive

Stunning view after stunning view as you head down into one of the deepest canyons in North America. Then more amazing views as you follow along the South Fork Kings River to Roads End. We were lucky to see it this past June when the river and waterfalls were running even faster than normal due to a very snowy and wet winter and spring.

One of the most beautiful scenic routes I've ever been on...No pictures will do it justice, you just have to experience it for yourself. Although I did take several pictures, most of what I have is video, and I don't think I can upload this.
