This is a great alternative to Hwy 9 for a few reasons. 1) Very little traffic. 2) Hwy 9 is closed and detour is to Hwy 17. I rode this going north to south so basically down hill. It has some steep areas but is still very user friendly. There are some straight sections in the middle which allow you to pass any cars IF there are any. It is not super technical so a pretty good two up road, but quite enjoyable. Leads you right into UCSC. Nice ride!
