Ridge route

I saw a Hugh Howsler "California Gold" special, on the ridge route, I then looked it up on line. But I have some questions. Has any one ridden it on an LT? I'd like to do it. Just wondering about the gravel sections, if indeed they do exist, and how much, how loose and how far are they?

Re: Ridge route

It runs between Bakersfield and Los Angeles. Built before 5 & 99 existed. So... has anyone ridden it in a car, on a bike or on a mule?
