Beginner friendly cruise through forest setting. Good pavement, easy corners, very mellow.
Beautiful desert scenery with nice curves in the middle part
San Jose to Pascadero to Davenport to San Jose
San Jose to Carmel Valley, no highways
Excellent run for twisties through the hills and down the coast. When it's open, the Brookdale lodger is a great spot to crab a drink or coffee before hitting the return route.
Fun mix of mountains and coast with a few places to stop along the way
If you're on a motorcycle and you're not trying to make time, why would you bother riding 395 when you can take this epic, curvy scenic route. Super fun, open corners, and beautiful scenery.
Very pretty scenery on this out and back run - highly worthwhile if passing through the area. Could have a lot of tourists up there but still worth it. May be closed seasonally.
Very scenic and curvy out and back off CA168
Fast, mostly open corners, and great scenery. This is a great quick out and back to a scenic lake if passing through Bishop. Weekends during high season could be crowded.
Some dirt for those of us stuck in mostly restricted areas
Love this route through the parks. Great to ride with other bikers
Great brief section of 2-lane highway that goes over the mountain, fun curves and nice scenery also.
The superslap portions of the route are what they are, but the mountain roads portion of this route is fantastic.
Two major sections of mountains and twisties.
Beautiful scenery in the mountains.
NOT good to go any later in the winter season than about November as roads up at 5000 feet elevation will ice up and snow, but other times of the year, it's a long but great ride to a desert resort area.
The road condition is like Trinity rd. But it it does get a lot better about 3/4 of mile in. It's definitely worth doing especially if you came up Trinity rd. this far.
This is the local Route to Nacimiento Fergusson Rd. About 20 miles. This is what we take when Highway 1 is blocked in both directions. This path is rocky and completely unpaved. There are slow speed sections where there are several "neighborhoods" where locals live they are very friendly just don't speed through their area. Kids live and play up here. There are two sections where you need to watch your speed. no worry's though signs are posted letting you know you're in a "residential area." The Road head starts at Treebones Resort driveway. Go left onto Will Creek Rd. just keep trucking until you come to a fork in the road about 8-miles up. Follow the sign that says Naci-Fergusson/south coast ridge road. Things to be aware of: This road is used by locals. They drive really fast! This road is only passable with high clearance vehicles. Small/large trucks motorcycles ATV's. Can be done in a small car but definitely not recommended.
Alice's thru Big Basin, Bonny Doon, Swanton & Pescadero
