Swanton Rd

Swanton Rd is another alternative to Hwy 1. Coming from the North, you need to climb up 100 m, but the switchbacks are moderate. After less than 2km, you have a long descent which eventually gets you back to Hwy 1.

To the North, you connect to the Pescadero area via Hwy 1 and Cloverdale Rd / Gazos Creek . To the South, you can climb up Bonny Doon Rd into the Santa Cruz Mountains.
