The De Angulo Trail is now a wilderness freeway. The trail has been brushed and blowdowns removed.


Beware of private property off this trail-please respect the neighbors.

The recent storms have brought down deadfall across the trail.

This is a lovely trail, and it offers some truly breathtaking views of the Big Sur coastline.

It stars off as a little dirt road, with a gate and a sign that says "no parking." I talked with a pleasant fellow here at the gate, who is apparently one of the property owners, and he said that it is best if you do not park here as is it a school bus stop. I parked my pick up truck in the pull out on the other side of Highway 1 and started on my way up the trail. After a few switchbacks there is a sign marking the start of the trail proper, as it continues up the ridge.

Image

There are a few more signs when the public trail forks off with some of the private landowner's trails. The trail is short, but the uphill climb is intense, and eventually it meets up with the North Coast Ridge Road. There is no encroaching brush, and only one or two deadfalls, which are easily stepped over or ducked under and should not significantly slow your progress. The gentleman who I was talking with says that there is water to be had. On the road portion of the trail, you will come to a concrete block with a PG&E meter and some power lines over head. There is a little water spigot here, though you will need pliers to operate it.

The late February wind storm knocked down trees across the trail; some are difficult to pass through.

Could hardly be better. The trail has evidently been cleared fairly recently (thanks to who did this!).
A fresh sign shows where the trailhead is on the road leading up from Hwy 1.
Went up the De Angulo and down the Boronda trail and encountered no problems whatsoever.

As noted, there has been a massive hatch of ticks in the middle section - especially in the brushy bits, deep in the canyon. All of the recent posts are not only very helpful, but accurate. Thanks to Dr. Jack for posting the most recent path. Thanks to the Hopkins family and all other landowners on the route for continuing to support this legacy from Jaime de Angulo. Thanks also to all those who have recently placed signs, cut downfalls and flagged the most brushy parts of this trail!

If you walk this trail be sure to check yourself for ticks, they have been numerous after the rain.

Four of us hiked this trail, Steve & Marcia, Joe and myself during a rainstorm! The last posting was accurate, a clear trail with much clearing of brush and downfall trees. Thank you Jamie D'Angelo for your gift to us the future generations, (a very rare event) and thanks to those nameless volunteers for their work on clearing the trail. Without you the trails would not get used and lost to future hikers.

Hiking up the gravel road for a mile or so,the rockpile with the stick of wood got us onto the single track. ( A new metal sign set in concrete would be a good idea). We hiked to the top, following the flagging, and the cleared trail with a few small signs, crossing over one downfall tree at the top, but easy to hop over. There was also a new wood sign at the Coast Ridge Road to identify the start of the descent of the trail.

The weather was cold with strong winds and rain but we were fine with our pile jackets and rain gear. Hiking northward along the Coast Ridge Road, the wind was very strong and cold. We hiked to the next access, Timber Top (also with a new wooden sign) and hiked down the Boronda Trail. A beautiful scenic trail with views up and down the coast. by this time the wind and rain had abated, and the warm sunshine began to warm us up. We finished up by hiking eastward to retrieve our cars.
