Description

This road starts from the Perimeter Road near the Immigration Station. It branches off between some whitewashed park maintenance and fire station buildings climbing steadily for 0.7 mi. at 7% grade to the loop section.

The loop itself doesn't vary much in elevation as it circles the island. The north side is shaded in oak woodland while the west and south sides are more open shrub and chaparral. Several hiking trails lead to the summit and two campgrounds are located on the loop.
