This road borders the northern boundary of Yosemite National Park (YNP) and has many places to pull off and explore either near the road or go for a walk/hike into the woods. There is enough variation of habitat so that you can find a number of interesting plants ranging from azaleas to orchids. The several streams that you encounter on this road are especially good areas to explore. YNP is to the south of the road and many of the areas that you can access from the road are actually within the park.
