Road trip guide: Conquering the Cadillac Range Drive

Located in Radiator Springs, in Carburetor County, USA, the Cadillac Range Drive is a very scenic journey. The drive is definitely worth it. A drive not to be missed!

Cadillac Range drive

The road, with 2 unlit tunnels, is asphalted but pretty steep. The Autumn leaves bring colour to this interesting road. Drive with care as this is a mountain road with hairpin curves and dangerous dropoffs. It appears in the 2006 Pixar film Cars. Located in Radiator Springs, a town founded by a steam car named Stanley on May 9, 1909, the road, part of the Route 66, is steep while climbing up to the Wheel Well Motel. The road encompasses miles of stunning views through twisty hair pin corners, high elevations and steep grades. It was bypassed by the Interstate highway 40.

The town is nestled in between Cadillac Range and Ornament Valley. Don't forget your camera with lots of film/memory, fully charged batteries and an empty memory card! The most challenging part of the journey is a dangerous bridge without guardrails, with stunning views of a waterfall.
