Coming from Pacifica you can pick this up via Canada and park at Edgewood or Highway 92 depending on how much warmup you want before OLH. You can also come down Highway 1 from Pacifica and pick up the route off of Highway 1 by turning left at Tunitas Creek. Tunitas Creek turns into Kings Mountain at the intersection of 35 at the top of the climb. At Roberts Market, turn right onto Mountain Home and follow the route back to Highway 1.
Using Canada, Go south on Canada to the intersection of 84 and Canada Road, Roberts Market is on the right.
Go through the intersection and Canada turns into Mountain Home,
continue on Mountain Home until stop sign.
Bear left at the stop sign onto Portola
At the next stop sign turn right. You are still on Portola
In approximately 1 mile turn right on Old La Honda. The road pitches up and you will climb for about 3.5 miles before you come to a stop sign,
right on Skyline at the top and continue climbing followed by a fast descent to Skylonda at the intersection of Skyline and Hwy 84. (water available at a tap outside at the store on the NW corner of the intersection),
west on 84 to San Gregorio (anther little store with water/food, etc. Take off your biking shoes, please),
right on Stage,
right on Hwy 1,
right at the bottom of the hill just after you cross the bridge,
climb Tunitas Creek Rd for an hour or so,
descend Kings Mountain Rd.,

Have fun and good cycling.
