Hey I love touring! This looks awesome. Do you have any route advice if I want to do a similar trip? Or better yet, actual maps of your route? Thanks!

hey lis, the route is fairly simple though I don't have a map at the ready. head out of king city (you can get here by amtrak without boxing your bike, super easy) via jolon road, and curve down into ft liggett. head north toward arroyo seco rd. it's about 40 miles to get to the wilderness, and that was day 1. day 2: head north on arroyo seco, unpaved/unmaintained. plan on bringing lots of extra water, camp by the river where you can swim. day 3: ride out northward and slowly curve your way toward central (ave?) which runs the length of the valley parallel to 101. then another 4 miles on 101 to drop back into king city.
