We slavishly followed our gps to get from Sonoma and Napa via Trinity Rd and then Oakville Grade. Trinity Rd is both curvy and graded so that your car slants toward huge drops. We were in a rental that did not handle well in abnormal...More

Hadn't driven this road in years. Drove it this week in our Miata MX 5 and it was a blast - much better condition than I had remembered, not as dangerous but still lots of twisty turns. Saw some deer while on the road. Several...More

During our visit to the wine valley we stayed in Sonoma. When we plugged our winery into the GPS it routed us over the Oakville Grade rather than back tracking to the main highway. When we turn off Sonoma highway there was a fire truck...More

Looking at a map, you may think this an easy and fast way to cross between Napa and Sonoma...NOT! It is a beautiful, winding, mountain road, with a variety of meadows, woods, flora and fauna. Well worth the 30 minutes or so that it takes...More

The road is narrow with switch backs and steep grades. Don't drive it at not or when wet. I would drive it again as one of the other reviews state. It's a must to get the real feel for the local life.
