I had the same problem as the last review and tried to find the start but ran into the Phillips 66 refinery. I asked the Guard if he knew of any openings in the fence but he said "no". I checked along the fence line and the gates were well locked up and some even had additional fencing behind it. I drove in through the Pismo beach area and it looked like a lot of it had been cordoned off but orange construction fencing. Talked with a Park Ranger and they stated they are trying to preserve and restore areas of the beach. You can still get back in the area, but I HIGHLY recommend bring a full set of MaxxTaxx or traction aids. Beautiful and quiet area though.

Tried enter the start location located on the map. Took me to Phillips 66 refinery and a locked gate. maybe the route is outdated. I've been out to the dunes I was just looking to check out that road on the map.
