These are not the Alps, so don't expect significant height, but beauty, serenity, clear skies, lots of mountain overlooks and somewhat dense forest are abundant. Go up at night and check out the stars. Take in some of the special off-shoots along the drive. Take snacks and drinks with you. Although you are not many miles from town, the speed limits are very low and you don't move fast through the mountains. Ranger station is a must. Get some maps so you can plan what sections you want to see. Very helpful staff. Some of the things along the way have fees, but if we want things to be nicely maintained, we have to be willing to help with the cost, and the fees are minimal.
