To access Carmel Valley Road, you would have to take the Arroyo Seco/G16 exit from Highway 101 in the town of Greenfield. It's a windy, remote road, so can't say if it would save you time, but I hear it's a nice drive.
Thank you for the info. We love back roads... but will save it for the way home. Thanks again kibblesmom.Edited: 10:49 am, April 15, 2012
