After your visit, continue north on Highway to Pescadero, turn right onto Pescadero Creek Road and go two miles. A great place to stop for lunch is Duarte's Tavern, famous for their Artichoke soup and bread! Can you spell yum? Continue up tracing a narrow, winding road to Skyline Blvd (CA 35) turn right on Skyline and continue south. Fogerty winery and open vistas are available if you wish to stop.
