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.
