Please note that like all gravel roads, the condition of the road can be effected by weather conditions, and damage caused by vehicles. Expect the unexpected.
The first part of this climb takes you through a residential street, but given that a number of houses have trees or hedges as a fence line. It is easy to mistake this for a forest.
The climb winds its way left over the first 500 metres with a very consistent gradient.
The road bends to your right, and the next section is easily the best part of William Road. To either side of the road, you are surrounded with a sea of trees. There is a sign up ahead warning of a hairpin.
The road heads straight for approximately 50 metres before you hit a sharp left hand bend.
The last 700 metres gently winds its way up till you reach the intersection at Grantulla Road.
