"You thought it was quiet in Pescadero..."

...but La Honda is even more quiet and remote. Closer to Silicon Valley but further from the ocean, Pescadero Creek Road in La Honda is about as back woods as one can get in the midst of one of the most populated areas in the nation. It really is a bit of an anomaly.

The beautiful redwoods and other trees make for great hiking, and road bikers with a death wish seem to enjoy zipping down these twisting, winding streets. Motorcyclists here are in heaven as well, it seems.

Houses here are ridiculously overpriced due to La Honda's population cap. It takes a really unique person to want to live ten miles from the nearest grocery store, but the peaceful, quiet, remote nature in the redwoods certainly has appeal for some.
