This route is much more scenic than the road over Pacheco Pass to the north. The mountains here seem much more rugged and scenic. The drive from Coalinga to King City will take over 45 minutes, but the scenery is good and the drive isn't too winding. If you're coming in from Coalinga, there will be one viewpoint where you get a beautiful view over the Salinas Valley and see the Santa Lucia Range (which makes up the Big Sur Coast) in the background. I think the drive is along California Route 109, though I'll have to check that up.

Directions: West endpoint at King City, east endpoint at Coalinga
