10/29/2017 bicyclist killed in headon crash with wrong-way susp. impaired driver.
Summit Trail Road inside South Mountain Park, Phoenix. There were no specific location given, here is a sample of the Summit Road.
Here’s an illustration of an uphill section leading into a blind curve to the right. The road is a windy two-lane, with very narrow lanes; I get something under 20 feet from edgeline to edgeline, making each lane a bit under 10 feet. Sand/rocks/gravel is prevalent. Here’s a good view of a cyclist using the road.
