FYI, the good part is only about 10 miles long, then turns to shit.... But if you are into very slowly cruising, the rest of the run out to Stewart's Point is quite scenic. It would be torture for lowered/stiff cars tho...

Again, too much shit going on so I can't play!

What time roughly? I have an appt in Novato at 10:40 that will take about 20mins and I might be able to sneak away for a quick blast and get home in time for the garage door wrap up....

I went with Cornfed, Joe and Big Al. All of us lowerred, except for Joe at that time may have had stock springs, and we didn't have any problems. Not that you will not bottom out 100% for sure. We had a blast. Everone should have this on their bucket list. Have fun

Like I had said in another post... be careful on this road... the first 10 miles is fine, but once you get past the good roab this road narrows into a one lane road most of the way, with very bad roads, blind curves, and 2 way traffic...This is an old logging road that isnt maintained ad is used bu a lot of peaple.....The CHP is watching this road a lot more these days because of all the spirited driving going on .....
wrong move and you can be off the road in a second....

I have lost 2 corvettes on this road in my last 3 cruise i have done on this road..
Also the last 20 miles of it are VERY bad, Rocks all over the road, tree branches wet and very slippery ......I use to pre cruise this road when we used it on my cruise to get all the crap off of it...you will find rock alides braches on the blind curves..
Alot of our cars would hit bottom on the last 20 miles ....
If you use it just be very careful.. you never know whats around that next turn cause this could happen....this car was 5 ft from going over the side ...

I PM'ed you. I am leaving my house pretty soon, but my number is up there if you want to come.

Thanks for all the warnings and luck. Today will mostly be a road scouting day, but if I end up on the bad side I can't say I was not warned!

Ouch I heard about this one; I remember Al and myself sliding on some gravel at one point on a hair pin, that was a close one. The rest was all good though!

Ahh I really want to take my bike up that route. But one full day of driving is enough for one weekend. I need to do some Christmas shopping!
