The Sierra Vista Scenic Byway is a nearly 100-mile journey through the Sierra National Forest with breathtaking panoramas, unique rock formations, and even a charming general store with mouthwatering hamburgers and amazing pie. Starting at a little over 3300 feet above sea level, the byway makes its way past historic cabins, stands of giant sequoias, and iconic landmarks as it climbs to over 7300 feet.

Don't miss highlights such as the Nelder Grove of Giant Sequoia (area currently closed), Globe Rock, Jesse Ross Cabin, Mile High Overlook, Mammoth Pool, Eagle Beaks, and Jones Store.
