If you can make this drive from north to south, you will be on the seaward side of the road.

“What a Drive!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2003

A friend told me that while I was in the area that I had to do this drive. Some of the locals had not even heard of it! We did it on March 8, 2003 just two days before they were due to do some major work on it. It was a blast and the only time that I was glad I had upgraded the rental to a SUV. There were many deep ruts and other interesting terrain. I would not have enjoyed it at all in a car. I assume this will change after the road work. Anyway, it is well worth the time and a great drive! Highly recommended.
