Devil's Slide Trail: From Treacherous Highway to Breathtaking Pathway
Devil’s Slide was a treacherous section of Highway 1, plagued by countless accidents, casualties, and road closures since it opened in 1936. Despite the risk of danger, astonishing views of the coastline were a welcome reward for those willing to navigate this narrow winding highway. When a landslide closed down the road for good in 1995, a group of citizen activists banded together and successfully proposed to turn this 1.2-mile section of road into a sensational segment of the California Coastal Trail. When it re-opened in 2015, the paved multi-use trail featured dedicated lanes for bicyclists, pedestrians, and equestrians alike.
