What people are saying:

CA-120 is one of the few transportation routes that cross the Sierra Nevada in the summer. It takes I-80 north of Lake Tahoe to the north and CA-58 in Southern California to cross the mountains. On the west side of the park, CA-120 walks around the mountains, turning the peaks, and there is a fork in the road to Hetch-Hetchy Reservoir; on the east side of the park, CA-120 crosses a section of the plank road in Lee's Canyon, which is very steep and can be called a project. pioneering.
