This road isn’t unpaved, but every other indication I’ve seen mentions how overgrown and poorly maintained this road seems to be. The road is listed as originally being a 30’s era section of US 101 that’s been obsoleted by the new road which takes a more direct but steeper route closer to Cascade Head.
This route is part of the Oregon Coast Bicycle Trail because the lower incline is much easier for our non-motorized brethren, so please be aware of bicyclists when on this road since it’s not quite two lanes wide in all places.
I like linking this road in a nice loop around the backside of US101 that goes over hill near Cascade Head. Doing this loop a few times is a good way to burn a couple hours.
