America's Scenic Byways

Sierra Vista Scenic Byway

82.7 miles - Allow about 5 hours to travel this byway.

The byway meanders for 100 miles through outstanding scenery with remarkable views of the crest of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Visitors will see massive granite domes, majestic peaks, sheer canyon walls formed by the San Joaquin river, and expansive high mountain meadows.

Evidence of glaciation is present at sites along the Byway at Arch Rock, Jackass Rock, Globe Rock and more. A mild, half-mile walk takes visitors to the top of Fresno Dome where glaciation can be observed up-close and boundless views of the Sierra Nevada, rolling foothills and the San Joaquin Valley are spectacular.
