I'm going to be travelling See Canyon Rd/Prefumo Canyon Rd south to north later in the year.
Looking at the route on Google Maps, instead of connecting me back on to CA-1(N) at San Luis Obispo it takes me north-west on Los Osos Valley Rd, north on Bay Blvd through Los Osos and connects me back on to CA-1(N) there.
If I drag the route to force it to connect me at San Luis Obispo it adds a minute so it's one of those kinks of some route planners that doesn't take account of how complicated the route it offers you is if it saves you time. (In other words, most people would rather add a minute to their journey and have a simpler route, right?)
However, my excitement is always pricked by seeing off-the-beaten-track routes through places I don't know. So if this Los Osos Valley Rd/Bay Blvd route is a worthwhile diversion I'm happy to take it.
Is it? And, if it is, why?
