Forest Highway 7 between Willows and Covelo

The 37 mile dirt road cuts across the Coastal Range (and Mendocino National Forest) between the Mendocino Coast and the Central Valley of California.  In fact, Mendocino National Forest is the only national forest left that is not transected by a paved road.  The pass was at 5,006 ft above sea level (1,526 meters).  We saw just six pickup trucks and two motorcycles on this desolate road.

Sweet, that looks perfect for a sporty car/bike. I'm more into dirt roads at the moment.
