Dirt

If you come north through Gorman, the longest stretch of dirt will be through California Valley from 166 to 58, then west on 58 blacktop to Red Hill Road (dirt), west & south to Pozo, south from Pozo on Hi Mountain Road (dirt) which will take you to Lopez Drive & dump you into the town of Arroyo Grande. From there north on 101 to SLO & north on 1 to Big Sur is all blacktop until the Coast Ridge Road, which starts North of the SLO/Monterey County line on Hwy 1 & runs north in the Los Padres NF and terminates on the north end at Nacimiento/Ferguson Road (a MUST ride).

There is a little dirt up here, just nothing like the SW or Baja. Most backroads that go anywhere have been paved, the dirt is pinched by NF, military or private property gates.
