Urge you to consider ending your ride with High Mtn. road from the Pozo Saloon. It was in good shape a couple weeks ago. When you get back on the pavement you can ride through the Edna Valley wine country on Orchid Rd up to SLO and maybe stop at Bailayana for a bottle of one of their nice whites.
Here's a GPS track. Look for the Pozo Saloon weigh point for the turn: http://www.findmespot.com/spotadvent...?tripid=317578
