600 curves in one day – why I love Central California.

CA190 from 100 Giants Trail to Balch Park Pack Station

http://goo.gl/maps/U9eDr
45 miles - 294 curves

This is a mountainous road that runs from a grove with —supposedly— 100 giant Sequoias (I didn't count them) down to Springille, in the valley.
With almost 300 tight corners and almost no traffic at all, this must be one of the best kept secrets of the entire State of California. Highly recommended.






















Yokohl Rd

22 miles - 80 curves


This picturesque little road cuts east of the valley through beautiful ranch hills. The pavement was not great at times but it was still a blast to ride and enjoy the scenery.















CA245 and Dunlap Rd from House Spring to CA180

http://goo.gl/maps/39s0c
32 Miles - 202 curves

The CA245 - Dunlap Rd is a better known route among twisty road lovers; the pavement is gorgeous and its 200 tight curves are even more so.
This route runs from the valley up Kings Canyon Road on the low mountains in Sequoia National Park.









Seriously, I love this place!
