At a Glance
One of the problems on this constantly
twisting road is that if you get stuck behind a single pylon,
you can end up going about as fast as a Model-T. And given the
generally great asphalt and lack of driveways east of the Hwy
236 Jct, if Henry J. Ford is out there, youíre going to catch up
to him. Until you encounter a horsepowerless carriage however,
youíll experience the unforgettable feeling of essing on smooth,
climbing, well-engineered blacktop through a mature redwood
forest that breaks only to offer you some panoramic southern
views from the ridge atop Waterman Gap. When it drops down the
Saratoga side, past the junction with DH55 Saratoga Gap Ė Hwy
35/92 Jct, the road is bumpier, steeper and more erratically
engineered. Itís more erratically forested, too, as the solid
redwoods give way to a mixed forest of alder, ash and pine. But
whichever scenic section of this DH youíre on, itís a great
place to be laying on the throttle, getting down on your sliders
and, if a Tin Lizzie appears, leaning on the horn. AAAOOOGAH!
