"So pretty..."

The upper part of this road, which leads to Huddart County Park, is so pretty that it could be a hiking trail. The canyon that it passes is filled with redwoods and waterfalls, and the narrow switchbacks make it reasonably exciting to drive on. In the winter, all of the foliage is shrouded in bright green moss, further contributing to the scenery.

The winter does, of course, tend toward flooding, and some portions of the road might be wetter than one would like. Closer to town, there are several mansions and estates here, filled with acres of land, modern homes, and even some horse stables. Don't even consider living here unless you come from money, but if you do, I can't imagine a better place to live. The homes are even close enough to town that you actually feel like you are living in a real town!

One fair bit of advice: Huddart Park is NOT right around the corner; it is several miles up the road, almost on Skyline. The scenery certainly makes it worth the drive, but the signage can be a bit deceptive if you are not prepared to drive on a challenge road, and places to turn around are few and far between. Nearby Wunderlich Park is your best bet if you would rather log miles on foot than by car, and best of all, parking there is free!
  • Very scenic
  • Residences are close to town
  • Easy to get to
  • Few places to turn around
  • Very expensive
  • Driving can be tough
