Calaveras Rd

Calaveras Rd starts in Milpitas at Evans Rd / Piedmont Rd. The initial climb covers 300 vertical meters. After about 4.5 kilometers, Calaveras turn left and you hit the short but very steep (15%) Calaveras wall. The road which continues straight ahead is Felter Rd, the connection to Sierra Rd.

Once you are on top of the Calaveras wall, the road winds above the Caleveras Reservoir with many up and downs. This goes on for about 10 km and you can enjoy the views over the reservoir the mountain rage towards the East. Then it's downhill for another 5km and finally flat until you get to Hwy 680.

You can continue North via Sunol, a short stretch on busy Niles Canyon Rd and Palomares Rd.
