Looking at the route map in detail, I see that at mile 34 the road as shown on Google Maps street view seems to end and does not appear again until mile 39, which is at the intersection of rd413. Is this that "cyclocross" section that was mentioned? Do I need to pack my machete and inflatable water raft for this..?
The section is a climb and descend on a forest road, it's a bit old, but rideable - one of my most visited climbs, has a very steep incline in the middle, where I've fallen once (the first time I went there).
What you should really watch out for is the descend to 413 - it's steep, curvy (almost no straight sections) and narrow, with lots and lots of stones on the road. Never met a car going up there, but, I think it's not impossible.
Cyclocross part will be after that - never been there. Maybe there's a road now..
