About This Adventure

Highway 9 offers one of the most picturesque driving routes in the San Francisco Bay Area. This winding road takes you through charming towns like Saratoga and Santa Cruz, connecting San Jose to the coastal gem of Half Moon Bay. As you cruise along, keep your eyes peeled for the abundant wildlife that calls the roadside home - drive cautiously to avoid any unexpected encounters. The highway is well-maintained, ensuring a smooth and enjoyable journey. Along the way, you'll find several vista points where you can pull over and soak in the breathtaking views. These make for perfect romantic stops, provided the air is clear of smog on that particular day.

Begin at our outfitter location on 2265 Stevens Creek Blvd: California State Route 9 Rural and mountainous state highway in California Route Description Travels 35 miles from SR 1 in Santa Cruz to SR 17 in Los Gatos, passing through the San Lorenzo Valley and Saratoga Gap in the Santa Cruz Mountains.

Whether you're a local seeking a scenic escape or a visitor exploring the Bay Area's natural beauty, Highway 9 promises a delightful driving experience filled with stunning vistas, charming towns, and plenty of opportunities to connect with nature.

Just remember to follow the road rules - if there are three or more cars behind you, be courteous and pull over to let them pass. One of the highlights is Alice's Restaurant, a delightful oasis nestled away from the hustle and bustle. This gathering spot for motorcyclists on weekends comes highly recommended for its lively atmosphere and fantastic road scenery leading up to it.
