Dirt road off the beaten path of the popular highway 1. On a clear day you'll get views of the Pacific and some quiet tree covered road. Used for off-road and mountain biking. Sign states the road is impassable in wet conditions.

Nice route to enjoy some cool, quiet scenery. We took a few stops at some prime photo locations to look out over the Pacific while looking down into small canyons. Saw a couple passenger vehicles also taking this road, but I'm sure it was dicey in some spots.
