Our return to the Santa Margarita Park will be the final destination / termination point for this ride.
We will head north on Highway 101 to the Highway 166 exit (5.2 miles) and continue east on 166 with a stop at the New Cuyama park before continuing on to Maricopa (75.9 miles) where we will turn left and head north on Highway 33 through Taft and pick up Highway 119 and travel through Ford City, Valley Acres and Dustin Acres until we come to the junction of Highway 43 (22.8 miles) where we will stop for fuel at the Shell station and take a break. We will turn left and head north on Highway 43 and just after crossing Highway 5 we will make an immediate right onto Panama Lane and travel east for approximately 9 miles. We will then turn left onto Gosford Road and then right on White Lane and travel a short distance (2.4 miles) to Salty’s BBQ & Catering will be on our right just past Big Brand Tire’s.
Salty’s was featured on the Food Network’s Diners, Drive-in’s and Dives with Guy Fieri so I have been looking forward to making this trip and trying some good BBQ….other than my own of course! LOL! Rick, the owner, has several choices of meat to choose from as well as sides.
After lunch we will head east a short distance and make a right onto Ashe Road and then right back onto Panama Lane and back to Highway 43 where we will head north to Highway 58. We will stop at the Chevron at Calders Corner just after getting on the 43 and top off our tanks. We will cross Highway 5 and travel through Buttonwillow as we make our way to McKittrick and pick up Highway 33 before picking up Highway 58 (32.2 miles) and head west to Santa Margarita where we will stop at the park for a break and to say our goodbye’s (70.3 miles). This will be our termination point for the ride. From here it is 40 miles back to Santa Maria.
