Graham Hill Road runs North-South. The southern end starts at the Ocean Street/Ocean Street Extension intersection next to the Santa Cruz Memorial Cemetery. Graham Hill Road goes uphill from there. The road runs past the Graham Hill horse show grounds, the eastern side of Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and the entrance to the park's campground area. After you pass Santa Cruz County's Juvenile Detention Facility and you'll head down into the town of Felton, where Graham Hill Road end at the intersection with Highway 9/Felton Empire Road.
The only areas on Graham Hill Road that is bike-friendly is in the town of Felton where there are bike lanes. One other area is along side the Graham Hill horse show grounds, where there is a bike path that runs from Henry Cowell Drive to just past Treetop Drive. On the rest of the route, there is no shoulders and you will be riding in the traffic lane.
