The Route

After a fire devastated the area—and later a heavy storm compounded those problems—the only sealed road up to the ridge, Naciemento Ferguson Road, was forced to close for repairs. Their loop led the two riders up a long, steep, and dusty dirt climb before riding across the ridgeline and finally descending to the Ocean. They threw in a few side missions along the way for good measure. You can take a look at the route below. P.S. This looks like a great overnighter route.
