Default Norcal Roads

Anyone find any really nice windy roads up here to do some driving at? I Know of a few but I wanted to see if any other nor cal members knew of some more. I live right by Hicks in South San Jo so I definitely do that one every so often. What have you guys found?

You're late too the party! I lived right by the new almaden end of hicks and used to love driving that road. The condition is pretty sketch but its a fun road for sure.

Well I have been driving that road for years, and others around here to. The conditions can be sketch though, I know a few who have flipped cars up there.

I was just hoping some other roads would pop up hear, not just the usual Hicks, Mt. Hamilton, and Hwy 9 roads that most people know about, like roads off the usual radar scope of good driving roads.

Check out Uvas road if you're in the south bay, it'll take you towards Morgan Hill.

I know this is old, but you should come to marin sometime for a fun run up fairfax bolinas road. I hit it up all the time. Very fun road that can take you to stinson if you go all the way up, i usually go up a ways, spin a 180 in a dirt parking lot, and come back down. Anyone is welcome to join in too haha. lemme know via text/FB.

Download the BMW Ultimate Drive app for iPhone and Android. People post up different drives which is pretty cool.
