Directions

Since this map is intended to showcase hidden treasure off the beaten path, and since it is a map, it is important to include an accurate location for your post. If the location has a physical address, it's easy, just use that. If it's location without an address such as The Gorge Swimming Hole in Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park, you'll need to get the GPS coordinates from your phone. Please include the GPS coordinates in your submission. Your placement of the marker can be approximate. The "Get Directions" button will use your GPS coordinates, not your marker placement on the map.

Review

All posts to the Wine Walk Social Media Map are subject to review before being published. While we welcome all contributions, we need to ensure all posts contribute value to other Wine Walk visitors. There is a finite amount of space on the map and too many markers will make it unusable. We welcome all posts on our Facebook and Instagram pages but can't accommodate everyone's experience at our tasting rooms, for example, on this map. Here we'd like to showcase special locations off the beaten path to enrich your Carmel visit.
