don't miss the USUAL road goes south out of Shelter Cove Ca. I am sure some dork will tell you you don't have the right bike for it. We were told not to do it 2 up on our Dakar. Oh yea..... if it has rained a lot reconsider
North of their is Cape Medencino...... several miles of coast with just one ranch. We had a great night camping on beach...... found a pullout and hid our bike behind some bushes...... marginally legal I guess.
