I went the back way to Kirk Creek through Fort Hunter Ligget. What would normally be a lightly traveled road is now the detour for all traffic transiting highway 1 south of Kirk creek campground. Due to a mudslide, highway 1 will be closed for a few more months but naciemiento-fergusson road is open. It's a very scenic route across the Santa Lucia range, but dodging motorhomes and impatient cagers kind of ruined it. Oh well, the ride north through big sur was worth it.
