I rode this from west to east, starting in Fortuna on the coast. It will take you about 4 hours and while being beautiful, it can be hairy. If people driving cars would drive at a speed that allows them to at least appear to...More

This road is very narrow and a lot of curves. Took longer than we anticipated. It was beautiful but long.
