Start this route just south of a town called Little Lake, CA off of US Highway 395 you will need to turn west on 9 Mile Canyon Road (later this road changes names to Sherman Pass Rd & Forest Rt. 22S05). Take this till it T's into Rt. 99 (Mtn. Hwy. 99 & Kern River Hwy.) where you need to go right and follow this in to and through the town of Johnsondale, CA. After Johnsondale, the road changes to Parker Pass road and take it the route's end when it intersects with Great Western Divide Hwy. See the map above and follow the road signs on this road..
Exceptional scenery. Large trees and many distance views along the way from high altitudes. The terrain is mountainous with extreme drop offs on the edges of the road. Guardrails are few.
The road is 2 lanes but 18' narrow. Some areas are in need of repair but not too bad. This a very twisty road with excessive grades. In fact, the road is so twisty you'll not encounter any trucks or RV's.
Not too many. Best to carry your own snack. You'll be taking this one for the scenery and the twisties.
