Devil’s Slide Trail – The Best Highway 1 Experience

Devil’s Slide Trail is probably the best way to experience Highway 1. It is a segment of this iconic route that has been bypassed by two tunnels and a bridge. It is now closed to traffic, but walking, hiking, biking, and leashed dogs are permitted.

What you need to know

  • There are small parking areas were at each end of the closed highway.
  • During the week is wonderfully empty. Weekend can get pretty busy. You may need to take a shuttle to the trailhead.
  • There are bike racks, drinking fountains, restrooms, and pet waste stations.
  • It’s hilly.
  • BONUS: Just south of the south parking area, an unmarked trail leads a short distance along the highway and then out to the Devil’s Slide Bunker, one of the weirdest looking structures in the Bay Area.
