Anyone been on the section of 623 that runs south from Burke's Garden to Hwy 42? Gravel, paved? It looks interesting. Your thoughts please.

Thanks.

Standing on Hwy 42 ...looking north at Hwy 623..... it is gravel

Using Google maps, I find if you can not place the little yellow man on the road you that you are "zoomed into", then that road is 99% of the time gravel.

As for Hwy 623, I can not get the little man on Hwy 623 in the area that you are speaking of, so I would say it is gravel based on looking at the views I explained above, however, I must say it sure looks like a curvy road that I would want to try out.
I'm certain you most likely make it all the way through, but you would have to use 2nd & 3rd gear most of the time, and stay at a slower pace.

Next time I am in that area, I will ride it...
