We're going to Santa Cruz soon approaching from the South on the I-5. I know from the past experience that state route 152 from the 5 to Gilroy on the 101 is OK but from Gilroy to the 1 it looks like the 152 has more twists than a barrel of snakes. It may be not as bad as it looks on the map but if it is, I'd rather detour than listen to the DW freak as we trim overhanging trees or play chicken with oncoming traffic in the tight corners
Is it worthwhile to go South to the 129 to cross over or go all the way North to the 85 and come back South? Is there some other way that doesn't show on the map as a major road?
We're traveling in a class A with no toad.
Thanks in advance for any insight
