Well worth the drive. Part of the road in the park was under construction but was still worth the 20 or so minute delay

The drive to the end of cedar grove is not a loop. It is about 40kms one way, very windy and twisty but the views of the mountains and canyons are lovely. Don't go if you don't have time as the drive does take up...More

Definately a beautiful drive in a wilderness area. The drive offers long range views of the canyon, a drive down the south fork of the Kings river, and spectacular warerfalls and forests. What's not to like? As good a drive as any in the 50...More

If you don't like winding twisty roads skip this but you do not know what you'll miss. One of the easy ways to see some spectacular mountain scenery amongst huge trees. Take your time and enjoy it.
