Stewarts Point – Skaggs Spring Road is a road with dual personalities. On the east side it is a one lane, rough, twisty goat road full of frost heaves, pot holes, debris and junk to dodge. It winds through a redwood rain forest and is very scenic. This area can be a bit treacherous in winter. It does freeze and there is snow here frequently as well. This half does not get a lot of maintenance so the condition is hit or miss … with a lot of miss in the equation.
At about the half way point, the road turns into a two lane, high speed, big bore lovin’ super road. It passes Lake Sonoma and heads into the wine country. It gets patrolled a lot due to the tendency of sport car and bike clubs using it for a race track. It is an amazing stretch of road to ride, but only about average on the scenery scale. The draw here is adrenaline … or another sneaky way to get to or from the coast with little traffic to impede you.
