As you'll recall from the last issue of The Double Cone Quarterly,
the next few installments of Lost Trails will be devoted to the Old Coast Trail, the only
route down the Big Sur Coast until the
Highway 1 in 1937.
Last issue we began the series with the section of the trail between Rockland Landing
and Gamboa Point. In this issue, we move down the Coast for a look at the old trail
between the San Luis Obispo County line and Redwood Gulch, including
the Salmon Creek area.
If you know of a long-overgrown trail you'd like to see included in a future installment of
Lost Trails, please don't hesitate to
let us know.
NOTE: Although the area shown on the maps below is mostly within the boundaries
of the National Forest, there are large blocks of private property as well, and any attempt
to find these old trails today should be carefully planned to avoid trespassing. Trail
locations shown on the map are approximate.
