Suggestions for backpacking trip

I am looking for suggestions for a 3-4 day backpacking trip 20-30 miles to do instead of the Pine Ridge Trail I was planning to do.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Suggestions for backpacking trip

Hi all. Would like some trip suggestions. Some background: I was planning a three-night four-day backpacking trip on Pine Ridge Trail in mid-June but now know it is closed.
Any suggestions for a 3-4 day backpacking trip in Big Sur / Ventana Wilderness area?

Current status of Pine Ridge Trail

Hi all. I am wondering several things:
1. What parts of the Pine Ridge Trail are closed/open?
2. When (in June, 2020) is the entire trail expected to open?
3. Is the June, 2020 date still the anticipated date of opening?
4. What is the status of Sykes Hot Springs?

Thank you.
