Old Coast Road: Northern Access Professional Review and Guide

"The Old Coast Road was the original coastal route connecting Carmel with Big Sur before the Bixby Bridge was completed in 1 932. The hike begins at the frequently photographed Bixby Bridge—at the north end of the Old Coast Road—and follows the twisting, unpaved back road through a shaded canyon dense with coastal redwoods and lush ferns. The trail parallels vBixby Creek and Sierra Creek and crosses two bridges over the Little Sur River. The road is open to the public but is bordered by private property."
