A beautiful scenic drive. The only way to truly appreciate the landscape is to get out of the car and explore on the various trails.
If simply taking a scenic drive, I would strongly recommend stopping at Diablo Lake Overlook, Ross Lake Overlook (3.5 miles east) and Washington Pass Overlook (a further 28 miles east). Perhaps stopping for a picnic by the water's edge at Thunder Knob Trailhead (situated at the southern spur of Diablo Lake). There are basic facilities and free parking areas along the route.
Be aware that a lot of the drive is tree-lined and may make the drive a little monotonous at times. Also factor in the heavy traffic around the greater Seattle area if journeying from afar.
