ANDREW MOLERA State Park is open for shuttle parking and day-hiking on the west side of Highway 1. Open trails include the Bobcat Trail, Creamery Meadow Trail (to the beach), Ridge Trail, Panorama Trail, Spring Trail and Bluffs Trail. Trail Camp/Headlands Trail is closed. Trails on the east side of Highway 1 are closed. The campground is closed. For details on the new shuttle service, see Big Sur Shuttle Service. In the spectacular Big Sur area, Andrew Molera State Park is still relatively undeveloped and offers visitors great hiking and beach-combing. Miles of trails wind through meadows, beaches and hilltops. A primitive walk-in trail camp, popular with hikers and bikers, is located approximately one third mile from the parking area. Open 1/2 hour before sunrise to 1/2 hour after sunset.

We loved this loop and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a moderately challenging loop with spectacular views. If you do the hike clockwise you'll have a slow, long, moderate climb up to the top of the ridge through a pleasant forest with views at the start then again at the end of the climb. Then a somewhat steep switchback section down to the bluffs where you'll be rewarded with a nearly flat trail for the last half of the hike. Counterclockwise, you get the long flat bluffs trail before a very steep, switchback climb up to the ridge halfway through the hike. Then a long, slow, gradual descent back to the start of the trail. Either way is fantastic!

Easy stroll (once you cross the VERY COLD IN NOVEMBER) creek. Be ready to have sandy feet when you put shoes back on after creek crossing; we opted to just barefoot whole way and back.
BEACH IS GORGEOUS

great walk and a beautiful beach, all flat and well maintened.

hard hike!! We took the South boundry trail straight uphill. it was difficult and there was no shade until you are about two thirds of the way up. but...Beautiful! Redwood forest about a mile from the top, stunning. the panoramic trail coming down is beautiful, but it zigzags all over. a trench has been dug in tje trail which made hiking precarious. i guess for rain water, but it is difficult to navigate. Defintely a great hike, bring a stick, a friend, and enough water. ran acrossed a mountain lion chasing two deer on the way back to the car.
