This is something else. Riddiculously twisty low gear turns in the heart of the forest. Almost too much for my rental HD Sportster 833 that I had. Funny experience though.

This "highway" leaves Hwy 9 and then rejoins it later. I started from the north end. This is a VERY twisty 1+ lane road with no center line. It curves through the forest and trees and is really quite spectacular...but do not expect to get out of first gear much, if any. Also, if you get stuck behind a car you may be stuck a LONG time. Bicycles are another road hazard. Once you get past the park and camp grounds the road gains a center line and you can finally click into 2nd gear. I recommend Jaimeson Creek which is just past the golf course and then on to Empire Grade for some really good riding. A smaller, more flickable bike is the way to go on this road!
