Written Directions

From Ukiah, go south on US 101 for 15 miles to Hopland. In Hopland turn left/east on California 175. Then hang on tight for 17 miles of incredible twisties.

Scenery

Some great views east to Clear Lake and beyond, but who has time to notice?

Road Quality

The road goes over a smallish mountain. Some parts of the road are newly repaved (as of August 2014) but others are not. The road spans two counties, and they have different paving priorities. The worst sections have several thin layers of asphalt in which one layer or another has worn here and there, leaving 1/4-inch differences in road height. But there's nothing to keep you from riding pretty hard. The locals drive their pickups at a good clip, so I expect we can. Oh, and don't look down--going up on the west side of the mountain the road hugs the steep slope and has no shoulder.

Roadside Amenities

Nothing between Hopland and Lakeport on the other end, but both towns are tourist-friendly with motels, restaurants, etc.

Additional Info

The road over the mountain is called Hopland Grade. Sections are like the Dragon but steeply graded. Good luck!
