I have to disagree with another reviewer. On my ride I found the 'Bicycling the Pacific Coast' book to be inaccurate. Almost everyone that I met on the route was using the Adventure Cycling Maps. Those that weren't were begging to borrow and copy them. There were numerous occasions where the Adventure Cycling maps routed you off the roads and onto wonderful bike paths. I recall meeting some cyclists in Arcata that had followed the book along the highway (through construction); whereas, I had followed a delightful bike path through farmland. Using the Adventure Cycling maps I took a small ferry across the Columbia River; those using the book rode across the bridge (terrifying I am told). The Advenure Cycling maps may take a slightly longer route; but, they always take you along safe roads and to scenic spots.
