Another oil spill has fouled this wonderful beach.
Closed until further notice:

I'm about to take the trip down south again and have a question regarding the directions provided on the map for section 4. The last time I went down this way and got to Oceano I couldn't figure out why the map directed riders to take a left on Los Berros road and take a roundabout detour to get back onto Cabrillo Hwy. It seemed to me at the time to be needlessly circuitous.

It seems to me that you could either go south on Halcyon road before hitting Valley Road, or just make a right at Valley and continue on Cabrillo Hwy.

Has anyone tried doing this instead?

Also, have there been any drastic or minor changes to this map since 2011? I'm wondering if I need to purchase a new one.


It's really hard to tell by looking at the Krebs map and poking around online whether this can be done on a touring bike, but if it is it would be a much better option than taking the road occupied by cars into the park.

Nearest I can tell from the mountain biking sites this fire road is considered technically easy, and physically somewhat challenging. I've never ridden any fire roads on my bike, but I'm a fairly good rider. I'm wondering if anyone here has ridden this route on any bike and could give me advice on whether I should attempt it.

I have really solid wheels with 35mm Schwalbe Marathons, but I'll also be loaded with front and rear panniers. If there are just a few precarious spots I figure I could get off and walk my steed for a spell, but I'd rather not be stuck walking my bike all day.

So should I take the paved road or the unpaved?

Hi all,
I'm planning a week long trip from SF to SLO and have been researching my camping options using the Pacific Coast Section 4 map and Krebs' Monterey map. I've got a fair amount of options, but there seems to be a deficit of options between Pfeiffer Big Sur and San Simeon. The one spot I came up with I found doing a Google Map search, a privately run campground on public lands called Kirk Creek Campground. My question is whether anyone has stayed at this campground (the fact that it doesn't seem to register on any bike touring radar makes me suspect), or knows of any other options midway between Pfeiffer Big Sur and San Simeon.
