This is a beautiful desert mountain highway. I have been driving up this route for years. Things to be aware of: There is often sand and gravel in the road, and pine cones etc up higher to the Bristle cones it gets pretty constant as heav y thunderstorms wash debree onto road. Rocks are also quite common, esspecially in the one lane gorge west of the pass. Don't speed into blind corners as there are often broken down semi tractors, or tipped Hay haulers, campers with burnt brakes etc... Not always, but every year I get a new surprise, and over heated the brakes in one of my own vehicles once. I plan to ride this route and camp in the Whites at least twice in a couple weeks. Love it up there. There are good ammenities in Big Pine at the 395/168 jct. Motels, Gas, some food and places to get water etc. Nothing once out on the road, nothing but winding beautiful country.
