Old Coast Road

1 Review
Location Monterey, CA
Rating Easy,
Length 10.1mi
Time 2hrs

Vehicle Types

Overview

Mix of dense forest and high coastal views.

Winding dirt road meanders downhill through cool wooded valleys with large sycamore and redwood trees, then climbs steeply to scenic rangeland high above the Pacific coastline. Take binoculars to see every detail below, including historic Point Sur Lighthouse. Street-legal vehicles only. Drive road in either direction. No turns to get lost. Great hiking in Andrew Molera State Park at south end.

Suitable for passenger cars when dry, but you’ll want 4-wheel drive if you get caught in the rain. Road can even be impassable in very wet conditions.

Old Coast Road was closed today. All entrances are locked up. The trail end allows a two-minute drive to a locked gate. *sad face*

So amazing trail for a nice easy drive. Some place where mud has come into road and trees down but all still passable. The only problem is the locked gates at both sides…ugh.

Great little trail, didn't have any issues with locked gates (10/17/2020). Beautiful views of the ocean and some massive redwoods. This will be a regular trip for me and my friends. Only wish is it was longer.
