The first half of the ride is rolling meadows giving way to the edge of the desert in Anza-Borrego state park. The last half of the ride is mountain riding through nice forrest, with many vista / lookout points along the way.

Overall good road. Can get some sand down by the desert and some ice / snow spots on the mountain climb in shady area(s) in late fall or early spring.

Good stops along the way - lunch in Julian is a must

Did this ride this weekend... loved it. Long curvy roads with little stops. Lots of beautiful areas to stop and enjoy the scenery. Heads out to the desert and then cuts back up a fun mountain pass up to Julian (GREAT area for apple pie and a coffee). Not too much to do other then Julian... but the scenery and road condition make up for it.

My only suggestion when on this route... check the weather for wind... and the temperature in Julian. It was a perfect day out when I left and the wind had my sideways out in the desert. There was also still snow up in Julian.

All in all... I will definitely be doing this route again.
