    Nice, very easy drive. Check with the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest Rangers on road conditions and probable closures during the wet season. As of today, the road is closed from the South approach leaving Granite Falls at Red Bridge just before Deer Creek; local traffic only permitted. Check out the mineshaft/portal at the intersection of Mountain Loop Highway and River Road.

    Eric Schoep reviewed Old Overland Stage Route

    Old Overland Stage Route (aka Great Overland Stage Route, Imperial Highway, San Felipe Road, and just plain old HWY S-2) is a fun drive through the deserts and mountains of San Diego and Imperial Counties. The following details were found at http://www.co.san-diego.ca.us/dpw/organization/desertroads.html:

    "Highway S-2 has several names: San Felipe Road, Great Overland Stage Route of 1849, Sweeney Pass, and
    Imperial Highway. Trumpeted by the El Centro Chamber of Commerce in the late 1920s as a "Gateway to
    Imperial County", it followed much of the route of the Southern Emigrant Trail, which began during the Gold
    Rush of the 1850s, and the old Butterfield Mail route, which began in 1851. The Imperial Highway Association,
    formed in 1929, urged the paving of the old Butterfield route. Imperial County did the first paving, from Ocotillo
    to the San Diego County line. From there to the bottom of Sweeney Pass, it was a set of meandering,
    sand-bound tracks. In 1951, County engineers designed and constructed the route along the hillsides and down
    the pass, but the road was still unpaved for several years. In 1953, a group of property owners lobbied the Board
    of Supervisors for road improvements, which finally came in 1959-61. The petitioners also asked for a name
    change, from Imperial Highway to the Great Overland Stage Route of 1849. The Supervisors agreed, despite the
    fact that the Overland Mail Route was never known as "Great," the route was not "Southern," and it didnt exist in
    1849."

    Fun twisty road from the desert bottom, through the mountains, and out to the coast. Great scenic variations!
