Great views from this very narrow passage but well worth it. You need to have patience and go the 5 mph speed limit.

I've driven up Skyline Drive several times yet I never grow tired of the view. Always a breath-stealer.

Amazing views! I was glad the traffic only went one way. Quite a thrill. You could see for miles on end.

A Sudan will be okay. The road, although very narrow, is paved.

If there is bad weather you will not want to be on this road. It is truly a trip across the razor edge of the top. No stops on either side of the one way road.
