If you are going south on Skyline (aka 35) south of Woodside you may end up on this road by accident...as we did today. The road is one lane with no center line and many corners are blind...especially the left hand ones. Many parts are first gear...2nd at most and do not expect to be scraping pucks here, unless you are a lunatic. That said, it makes for a great triangle route back to Hwy 9 instead of going all the way to Hwy 17 and Santa Cruz. For a Saturday with good weather, we saw 2 cars and maybe 5 bicycles...so traffic is light. There are some wineries towards the Boulder Creek (hwy 9) side...but they did not look busy. I enjoyed this road, my friend was a little freaked out about the blind corners. Enjoy with caution!
