Click on my link to the Mision Santa Maria trip, below (in my signature) to read and see all about the road to Mision Santa Maria de los Angeles, founded in 1767. The road was built in the 1960's and is only 14 miles long... but a 3 hour or more trip, one way! The road begins at Rancho Santa Ynez, near Cataviña, 300 miles south of San Diego in central Baja California (Norte).
There are several You Tube videos of the road, and the steepest grade most will film is the one just over a mile from the mission that I named 'Widowmaker' back in 1999 when I first rode it (on a quad), and was thrown off, leaving blood on the rocks! It is best driven by high clearance 4WDs and lockers, traction control or A-TRAC is a must!
I did a detailed trip web page of our previous run there in 2007... have a look: http://vivabaja.com/msm
