It's absolutely beautiful and well worth the drive, repeatedly, just like everyone else says. Can be hard to find parking most of the time, gotta get out there early but if you just wanna drive through and gawk...go for it. Traffic isn't usually that bad.

I found the most beautiful place on earth! This had to be the most wonderful scenic drive. Take your time and enjoy. Very narrow lanes but going slow ensures your safety. I wish I could do it again and again!

Depends on conditions. From the west side the road will close just past Avalanche Lake, probably in September. The park web site will have updated info. The park stays open year round, but most of the year, you have to take... More
