Going up into pozo then back down to arroyo grande is going north to go back south, not sure if that matters or not. Keep us up to date I may join in on some parts. I can show you some nice twisties with some dirt and awesome scenery when in the templeton - paso robles area if you end up this way. Keep us posted.

A long ride, but from Pozo head up to Parkfield, starting on 58 (no dirt AFAIK, but some nice narrow bumpy stuff on Bitterwater and Cholame Valley), then several miles of dirt towards Coalinga on the Parkfield-Coalinga Rd (Parkfield Grade). From Coalinga, back northwest on Los Gatos Creek Rd to Clear Creek, over to Idria and Panoche, back to Hwy 25 and LaGloria to 101, into Monterey on 68 and then back down 1 to Big Sur with a detour to take the old Coast Road just north of Bixby Bridge and then back to Hwy 1 before Big Sur.

Old Coast Rd... a gorgeous bit of dirt was closed two weeks ago when we were up there. FYI !

Expect about 180 miles with no gas between Maricopa and Coalinga. Very nice ride. But maybe go through King and drop back to Fort Hunter Ligget on the other side of 101 and over to Big Sur through the Army base.
