The view along much of the first half of the ride is very scenic, with  spectacular views of the Sonoma Valley and its vineyards far below.  The grade is  generally smooth (albeit moderately steep), with a few extreme pitches (a couple of short stretches in  the 16-18% range).

Narrow road, but minimal traffic and some great views of the Sonoma Valley

 Descent:  We recommend against descending this road for a number of  reasons.  The pavement is extremely poor, with many potholes, gravel and  rough stretches (one of the worst in Sonoma County).  The alternate descent is Trinity Road which intersects Cavedale about 2.3 miles west along rolling generally flat terrain.
