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!
