The California Coast
It’s the most spectacular trail in the state. It leads from one miraculous vista to another: a mountain peak shrouded in morning mist, a lighthouse poised vigilantly on a promontory, the ocean’s energy vented on coastal cliffs. When storms stream in off the Pacific, this trail never gets muddy. You can take it for hundreds of miles in hideous weather and never get your feet wet. It’s the trail known as Highway 1.
