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.

    Just an update, rode it again on August 9th, 2014 and the “tar snakes” were horrible. Hot day, they were slippery and un-forgiving.

    Rode from coast to 101. Perfect adventure bike road. Brutal on a sports car. Still had fun

    I ride Skaggs-Springs Rd once or twice a week on my CBR1100XX. I always ride Hwy 1 to Hwy 101 direction, I like to start off difficult and end with awesome. It is my favorite road in this area.
