Accessible from Hwy. 1 or Hwy. 101, about 35 miles drive from the coast. Leaving the coast and traveling up the mountains on Nacimiento-Fergusson Road is an experience in itself; the road is narrow, twisty and steep. From the U.S. Highway 101 Nacimiento-Fergusson Road can be reached from the King City area at Jolon Road (county road G-14), from the Bradley area at Jolon Road (county road G-18), or from Paso Robles along county road G-14. Travel to the town of Jolon, continue west along Mission Road about 5 miles, then north on Del Venturi Road for about 12 and 15 miles.
