Green Crow Logging Co.
(Spring 2014 Update: this is one of the places they've resurfaced the road recently, with a heavier grade of gravel. For the next couple of miles be ready to check your speed, in short, sporadic patches, some of it can be slow going.)
This dirt road continues about 3 miles or so after the yellow gate. It winds around through the woods a bit with a little fast descending at the end (if you dare) before it dumps out onto HWY 112. Turn right and follow HWY 112 about 4 or 5 miles to the Joyce General Store. This stretch is completely flat and very straight but has extremely skimpy shoulders. If it's raining, you will hate this part of the ride, with every passing logging truck blasting you with a 60mph wall of filthy road spray. Some will blast their horns at you for good measure. Because of the high speed traffic and lack of shoulders, this section of HWY 112 is kind of marginal riding under the best conditions, but downright horrible when it's wet.
