Felton-Empire Rd (3.7 mi, 1520ft, 7.8%). Of the 3 main routes(Alba, Jamison and Felton-Empire) from Hwy 9 to Empire Grade, this is the easiest. It starts very gently in the residential area, then delves into the forested redwood are and steepens. The grade is highly inconsistent, and wide selection of gears may be required. The redwoods scenery is the most beautiful if to take time to enjoy it.
