Curves: Almost continuous curves as the route snakes over a steady progression of mountain ridges.
Traffic: Generally light.
Distance: Approximately 73 miles.
Time required: 2 hours without stops
Technical difficulty: This is technical, mountain riding with challenging curves, narrow roadways, decreasing radius turns, and few guard rails
