Hmmmm....

One of my reasons for buying a GS was so I could ride up there. Old Coast Road, Crest Trail?

I just looked it up. NICE!!!

I have no detailed knowledge of the area so I cant contribute. I know my neighbor has ridden up there so I will ask him for suggestions.

FYI: I have very good friends in Atascadero that have an open door policy to all friends and their friends. We would be welcomed to spend Friday night with them if you were so inclined. They are on a large ranch lot and their guest house is a large, clean 5th wheel trailer (lots of room for tents too). Anyways, it's an option.

Since you did ask for suggestions: Friday could be 33, 166, Soda Lake, 158, Pozo Road, Pozo, Atascadero. Early Saturday run to Prewitt from the Hunter Ligget side.

You can try these in google maps by clicking the menu option in the "search google maps box" upper left corner and choose my maps, click create map at the bottom and choose import, and drag the downloaded file into the box.

Thanks Mark, those worked. Wow, that is one fantastic trip! Unfortunately, it's a bit more aggressive than I think I can handle right now! =D

If leaving late Friday is an option, I could participate and we can spend the night at friends in Atascadero. Makes it a shorter run to the camp site on Saturday.
