Sierra to the Sea Adventure Route: Motoring through California wildlands

Sierra to the Sea/Sea to Sierra Adventure Route (S2S) is our 825-mile, eight-day, GPS-guided backcountry motor route from the Sierra Nevada to the largest coastal wildland in the Lower 48, the fabled "Lost Coast."

Also known as Sea to Sierra ... or just S2S.


S2S is focused on Northern California's most scenic, historic and remote unpaved backroads. The objective: To immerse wildland travelers in some of California's wildest vehicle-accessible backcountry. With our detailed, plug-and-play GPS data file showing the way, you will be accurately led along every mile of the route.

One of many gold rush-era roads included in S2S.
Travelers are immersed in the canyons of Gold Country, the forests of the Sierra Nevada, the volcanic landscapes of Cascadia, the pastoral hills of the Coast Ranges and the windy bluffs above the Pacific Ocean.

Overnight options include dispersed campsites in national forests, developed lakeside campgrounds, oceanside state parks, and motels and B&Bs in historic towns that trace their founding to the forty-niners and offshore lumber schooners.


You'll cross streams once worked by forty-niners.

Making the journey even more convenient, the file includes precise GPS location markers (waypoints) for primitive campsites, developed campgrounds and fuel sources. If you don't have a dedicated motor-vehicle GPS unit, you can even load our ".gpx" data file onto a smartphone or tablet (Apple, Android or Windows).

S2S has been researched and documented by wildland-travel authority Tony Huegel. He is the developer of the acclaimed six-state "Heart of the West Adventure Route," and spent years chronicling wildland-travel opportunities for magazines, guidebooks, public presentations and marketing staff at major auto manufacturers. He is the founder of Rocky Mountains-based Backcountry Byways LLC, which provides personalized wildland-travel planning services to select American and international clients.


The Golden State lives up to its nickname.
