Looks like my buddy and I (possibly 2 buddies) are going to pull the trigger and tour the PCH this fall. Here is my itinerary .
Day 1 - Mill Valley to Montara, 33 miles
Day 2 - Montara to Santa Cruz, 62 miles
Day 3 - Santa Cruz to Monterey, 50 miles
Day 4 - Monterey to Big Sur, 38 miles
Day 5 - Big Sur to Cambria, 75 miles
Day 6 - Cambria to San Luis Obispo, 34 miles
Day 7 - San Luis Obispo to Lompoc, 54 miles
Day 8 - Lompoc to Santa Barbra, 53 miles
Does this sound reasonable? We are all 45+ males, all in good to excellent condition.
I figure maybe one day of rest in Monterey just because it is a cool town. Maybe one other day of rest somewhere along the way.
We are considering late September to early October.
The only stop that concerns me for accommodations is Big Sur. We will NOT be camping. Hostels and hotels for us. It worries me a little finding something reasonable in Big Sur.
