This short section is built into the side of a cliff - fantastic motorcycle road, a must see.

Buffalo Pass (Indian Rte 13)

This route is incredibly varied terrain in a short distance. Red Valley is red rock desert to start, then suddenly the road goes from 70mph straights down to 25mph sharp corners climbing up the mountain (buffalo pass), very scenic mountain road with a few views at the top. Continuing west you drop down the back side of the pass, and right into a Arizona red rock canyon. Fantastic rocks and walls, amazing. If you're in the Four Corners area, I highly recommend this stretch of road. Road surface was very good, no gravel but obviously keep your eyes peeled if it's been raining.

Check weather before going, I rode in September and assume it would be snowed in or closed in the winter.

US64 Carson National Forest

Beautiful stretch of mountain highway, up over 10k' elevation, so maybe only for spring, summer, early fall? The highway passes through many mountain valleys and by beautiful meadows. it's very scenic through here, my favorite part of US64.

Great brief section of 2-lane highway that goes over the mountain, fun curves and nice scenery also.


Nacimiento Fergusson Rd : Hwy 1 - Fort Hunter Liggett

CA - Monterey/San Benito/... > California > United States > America
November 23, 2010 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road3.7

This road is the only route east from PCH1 between Carmel and Cambria. From Hwy1 it climbs and twists its way up the mountain giving the most spectacular Big Sur coastline views imaginable. On a clear day, it is stunning.

For the most part, Nacimiento-Ferguson Road is a wide single track with switchbacks leading over the coastal range into a winding canyon to the Army Fort Hunter-Ligget. To ride on the base, you must show motorcycle license and proof of insurance. The road has no police presence unless you are on the base and are US military, not State.

On the base there is a great place to stay, the Hacienda and value for money, excellent bar, breakfast but no dinner. Bring some deli eats and there are microwaves in the rooms.

There is a cafe within walking distance (closes early), bowling and cinema plus a well restored Franciscan Mission. A bonus is one of 3 petrol stations in the entire Big Sur region and government prices per gallon the cheapest in the state.

One my favourite rides in California.

Mount St Helens Highway

WA - GraysHarbor/Thurston/Pier... > Washington > United States > America
June 28, 2013 - 5 star route rating Motorcycle Road5.0

This ride out to Mt St Helens and back - either for northbound or southbound riders on Highway 5 - is very scenic and a great road, practicallly *made* for motorcycles. Nice long curving corners, nothing surprises you. A gorgeous ride, and beautiful views of Mt St Helens when you get to the end. Go all the way up to the visitor center and go in and watch the movie/see the exhibits. Incredible place - the volcano is amazing!

Port Angeles to Cape Flattery

WA - SanJuan/Whatcom/Skagit/Sn... > Washington > United States > America
June 28, 2013 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

Very nice coastal run up to the tip of the Olympic Peninsula. Curvy road mostly in the forest, be careful if roads are wet - there is moss growing on the roads near the end of the route.

When you get to the end, you definitely want to hike out the Cape Flattery Trail out to the lands end where there are amazing views of sea caves, the island, birds, seals, etc. Gorgeous area and a nice hike through dense, lush rainforest. Dont miss it!
