“If you have a motorcycle....ride this road.”
Reviewed August 24, 2011

What can I say, this road rocks! It's a seasonal road so always check online to see if it's open. Traffic can be heavy but if you're lucky (like I was) you can almost have the road to yourself. It's in good condition with very little debris or gravel on the road. The corners are great with a few tight ones and some long sweepers too.
The best part about riding this road to the Johnston Ridge Observatory? You get to ride it back when you leave!!

“Great Drive if you have the time”
Reviewed August 19, 2010

It's a great 52 mile drive during the summer just make shure you get fuel in Kid Valley but make shure you also have drinks and other items with you, Great picture ops along the highway with a few waterfalls and also the elk and deer
