Sonora Highway 108 is the ultimate in High Sierra scenic bliss. Granite cliffs line the curves as the Sonora Pass climbs above 9000' elevation. Sonora River, creeks, meadows, trails and pine forests all along this highway. This one is usually the first Sierra Pass to close due to first season snow fall, as well as the last to open in the late Spring, so the scenic driving window of opportunity is narrower than most scenic routes. The lower elevation trails and camps are excellent areas for 4x4 and OHV recreation, staying open a bit longer than the highcountry. The upper elevation campgrounds are prime areas for fishing and day hikes w/ many trailheads in the region. Sierra wilderness areas abound as a true backpackers haven.
