Nacimiento-Fergusson Rd goes from the coast over to 101 . Before you get to Fort Hunter Liggett, there is a road that goes north and south. To the south the dirt road passes some great views and camping spots and I believe you end up down on Hwy 1 . You would need 4 wheel only if it is wet. You can get a Las Padre National Forest map from REI, which would show the roads. For 4x4 roads you need to go further south to San Luis Obispo

I drove a lot of it last weekend. Not really a "trail", it's a well maintained dirt road, it had just rained and i did not need 4wd at all. The views however are fantastic and there are some amazing camp sites.

I'd be up for exploring more of it if you want.

Pic is from last weekend.

yeah, that's a fun trail and it's one I do once a year because of the views. like it's been said, it's more of a dirt road and in the summer in can get super dusty. I did notice between 1/2 and 3/4 of the way, the trail splits and heads towards the east. I haven't checked it out since I usually alone when I do that run but I'd like to check it out one day.
