Road Quality: 4
Super nice road quality. Hills, mountains, valleys, twisties, sweepers, cruisers. Something for everyone.
Added by bmerryder (2/18/12): The mountain pass is twisty and there are no opportunities for gawking, after that there are miles of valley views and rolling hills, streams and more hills, idyllic.
Drive EnjoymentSuper nice road quality. Hills, mountains, valleys, twisties, sweepers, cruisers. Something for everyone. Added by bmerryder (2/18/12): The first 10 miles has a perfectly cambered mountain pass before beautiful rolling terrain takes over. The mountain pass is unlike any I've ridden, the cambers tilt into the slope making cornering a true joy, smooth well maintained
Tourism OpportunitiesAnything from small towns, mom & pop eateries to world class resorts like the Homestead. Golf anyone?
