Stewarts Point Skaggs Springs Road- Gravel Report

Monday 8/4 the Sonoma County Road Dept. was filling potholes on Skaggs Springs-Stewarts Point Road near the (within 5 miles of) CA 1 side.

These were soft asphalt patches which left lots of loose gravel so care should be taken riding that stretch of road.

(not to mention the east bound logging trucks)

Luckily that western part of Stewarts point road is pretty tight and doesn't get used like a race track like the section around Lake Sonoma...

Besides, I thought we WANTED gravel to ride our GS's on
