Short, but an insane silly road that has you feeling you're going to drive off of the road. Serious gradients here, folks.

For such a short ride it packs a bit of a punch. Even with the 25/35 speed limit you can't go much faster because the damned turns are so hard. Twisties, off camber twisties, steep up/downhill twisties, steep up/downhill off camber twisties and some sweepers thrown in for the cherry on top. I liked it quite a lot for such a shorty, and it sets you up great for 209 North, which I recommend doing, for 'The Rattler.' Face it, assuming you're coming in from 40 (West or East) what would you rather do? Slab it to 209 North, which looks like a very boring part, or take this little monster?
