Start in Sonora, CA and head east on CA 108 all the way until it junctions with US-395 in the town of Sonora Junction - 79 scenic miles in all.
This route delivers breathtaking vistas of snow covered mountain peaks, mountain meadows, wild flowers, wild life, water falls, and trees of every description. Panoramas so beautiful, they look painted. This is strictly a summer road as it is closed in winter. You can still see snow at the end of summer near the mountain peaks.
Photo contributed by a visitor in July 09: "This is the top of Senora Pass, approximately 10,000 ft."
The pavement quality is good for a two lane mountain road. The road is steep, narrow and very twisty near the pass. Overall this is not a beginner's road. Steep and narrow, with sheer drop offs. Awesome ride for an experienced rider.
There are no stores or gas station on the east side of the pass, and 18 Miles from the west junction to the nearest town Bridgeport. One recommendation for food - Strawberry ski lodge is a great lunch stop.
