"Twisty roads for hours!" Roads Tip by mingomatic

Roads, Big Sur: 11 reviews and 7 photos


Yep. When you're driving on the 1, you'll encounter twisty roads for an hour or more. It could be quite treacherous as it's right along the mountain. You'll be driving along the cliffs that overlook a beautiful view of the ocean. You have to keep your attention focused. Don't fumble with your phone or ipod during this time. People in your car might get car sick.

Also, you might wind up behind a very slow car and be stuck for a long time as you will not want to pass them on such a twisty road. It kind of sucks but you have to stick it out or flash them until they pull over and get out of your way. We were behind a huge trailer and that slowed our trip down significantly. We almost missed our tour appointment at Hearst Castle because of it!
