Remember to keep your eyes on the road here - it is a narrow one way very windy road that sometimes does have bikes coming up the wrong way. Some corners are so narrow you need to do a 3 point turn - this use to be the old railway route which is amazing to take in. If you get the chance, and there are a few places to pull over, do this to look at the view.

Cycling down this zig zag, and old railway track, brings great city views and valley vistas. Sunsets are awesome from certain bends, and there is car parking for you to enjoy the spectacle.

The Zig zag Drive is at its peak right now, so if you can, get there soon.
The road is just full of wildflowers of all types, just beautiful.It was nice to see people walking through it, just enjoying the flowers, and of course, the amazing view to the city.
The weather at present adds to the enjoyment.

The Zig Zag scenic drive is beautiful and a "must visit" for anyone in the area. Splendid views. A careful driver required, who is not scared of heights!
However, at night there are often people driving very fast and dangerously. The Zig Zag has a bad reputation at night.
