I remember years ago riding my heavily loaded touring bike through Uncas Rd from Eagle Bay to Raquette Lake, and the last mile or so had some very steep hills. The surface was soft beach-like sand sprinkled with rock about the shape and size of ice cubes. I remember sometimes I would catch the corner of a rock with the front tire and it would go pinging off into space, but luckily there wasn't much traffic so I never hit a car with one. It was quite exciting. I'm sure the road crews have a lot to do, and the terrain certainly can't make their job easy.
