Alvin Trail (aka Pitkins Curve - California Coastal Trail)

Post by jbl on Mon Dec 24, 2018 12:45 am

Date Hiked: December 22, 2018
General Condition: Wilderness Freeway (Heavily used and well maintained)

We took this from Twitchell Road at the top to Limekiln State Park.

The upper section has some minor brush encroachment, narrowing the trail.

There's a deadfall on the section as you drop to the switchback with the view of Limekiln Creek bridge; and there's a double trunk deadfall in the ~12" range as you drop from there to the bottom of the trail, which a tall person can step over but a non-tall person would need to crawl under.

There is some erosion in places on the steep sidehill causing the trail be pretty narrow in those spots.
