I believe this is the most diverse, interesting, and majestic road along the entire pacific coast of CA, and that says a lot! I never grow tired of this street or the journey. For those athletically inclined, Bottcher's Gap is where the road ends about 5-7 miles(?) up. The hikes are moderate difficulty, some are more challenging, so go prepared! It's worth it, though (even if I'm so enamored by the homes and creeks and trees and oddities along the way, I've only made it to the top for a hike one time)!
