92.2 miles: 2 hours, 11 minutes
Seasonal route: The road is subject to closure in winter. Traversing the northern portion of Yosemite National Park—and the park's only entrance from the east—Tioga Pass Scenic Highway (SR 120) is a visual feast. Frequent overlooks enable you to stop and gasp at one stupendous view after another. Negotiating some sections of the two-lane road is demanding, but the abundant natural beauty makes this trek well worth it.
