Hand-Cut

One of the many trails connecting Big Sur to the California coast was made possible by hand excavation in the early 20th century. This 120-foot tunnel was bored by hand to connect CA Highway 1 with a coastal dock for timber boats.

The dock must have been treacherous to embark. Jagged golden rock riddled by ocean currents and salt air threatened approaching vessels; a disheartening for any mariner.

The California coast abounds with opportunities.
