It takes some time to get there, but there are both great dirt roads and paved roads with little to no traffic.
The location: The Lost Coast
Kings Peak Road:
(Just East of Shelter Cove runing north to Honeydue)
Dirt - two creek crossing, some big hills and jumps, some big sweepers.
(Almost no traffic - a jeep now and then)
(Note: A couple of camp sites along this route)
Take 101 North past Mendicino county. There is a small town called Redway. You want to exit here and head west. The road is called the Shelter Cove Road.
Some other roads in the area:
Shelter Cove Road:
(From Redway to Shelter Cove - From East to West)
Paved - very windy, single lane, no dividing line, elevation changes
(Very light traffic)
Wilder Road: (From Briceland - Shelter Cove Rd to Honeydue)
Paved - very windy, single lane, no dividing line
(Very light Traffic)
(Note: There is a bar/burger place in Honeydue - but if you stop you will feel like you just step onto a set from Delieverance - Whoa! I don't think they even know what a Subaru is...)
There are some other roads up there like the Mattole Road - very nice - it runs through Honeydue and out to the coast.
Along the coast there are several dirt roads and there is another dirt road running south from Shelter Cove into the National Forest.
If you like camping there are several campsites around the Lost Coast.
This area is great, very few tourist, fishing, camping, great dirt and paved roads, almost no traffic.
I drove the King's Peak road several times and never saw a single car or truck.
The Kings Peak Range along the Lost Coast is the highest point in the US along the water. Kings Peak I believe is 4200 feet. Great sites.
I have been up there alot with my CJ7, but I am looking forward to taking the WRX out for an extended weekend trip.
