Riverside County R3 – Sage Road

Riverside County R3
Sage Road
Runs from Hemet (SR-74) to near Aguanga (SR-79)

This route was formerly State 79 until the mid 1960’s when it was rerouted west via Winchester Road. It is a rather fun road to drive though is rather remote. There are no services along the roadway and a limited number of intermediate connections.

The northern end makes a few turns.

Curves and grades indeed. Watch out for numerous off-camber decreasing radius curves.
