Old Coast Trail, Part Two
Trails and Homesteads from The San Luis Obispo County Line to Redwood Gulch

Compiled and drawn by Phil Williamson


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 completion of 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.
