The purpose of the drive is to take you to the Artist Palette, but the drive itself is astonishing. The best after the AP spot!.

I'm not sure why this one-way road will be closing, it looked to be in great condition when I was there. I would say the bicycles would be ok but that really depends on what they are doing to the road going through Artist's... More
