Written DirectionsStart in Ferndale, CA and head south on Mattole Road. Follow the road through Capetown, Petrolia, Honeydew, Bull Creek and wind up in Humboldt Redwoods State Park.
SceneryThis is an amazing road for scenery. It starts through rolling hills and through occasional wooded areas before it runs down along the Pacific Ocean. It then turns back inland twisting its way through more hills and woods. It will dump you out into the middle of a Redwood forest. Outstanding scenery!
Drive EnjoymentAlthough it has amazing scenery this road is borderline dangerous. Many sections are very very twisty and many sections' pavement is in very bad shape and full of potholes. The potholes are often difficult to see as you go in and out of trees. The shadows hide the potholes. Go slow and take your time. I bent two rims last time I rode this.
Tourism OpportunitiesThis road is pretty remote and there is virtually nothing along this route.
