Caleb's description is pretty accurate. 2nd half of the ride is definitely better than the 1st half. The lung-busting climb to the end of the road (if you can do it!), and the incredible speeds you can hit are more memorable than the views, but definitely worth hitting if you're in Stanley for a couple days.
Also, if it's a summer weekend, get there early. I had the trailhead all to myself at 7am, but when I finished the ride, the parking lot was so full, it was a maze to get my truck outta there.
