Great Western Hwy

The Great Western Hwy connects Hwy 190 at its Northern end with Host Springd Rd and Parker Pass Rd in the South. Parker Pass is about a mile (1.6 km) to the West from the intersection. Eastwards the road descends into Johnsondale and Bush Creek where it forks into Sherman Pass Rd (to Hwy 390) and Kern River Hwy (down to Kernville and Isabella Lake).

The Great Western Hwy streches over 25 rolling kilometers (15 miles). Elevation varies between 1800 m and 2200 m.
