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.

Open 1/2 hour before sunrise to 1/2 hour after sunset.

Outstanding! Great views - do the eight mike loop and then walk along the beach.

Beautiful. The best so far in Big Sur

Lots of uphill but worth the trek!

This trail is definitely through private property, we didn't see anyone during the hike (started around 10am) but sounds like others in the comments did.

Driving down HW1 you can park directly opposite the entrance. Then just follow the road (hop a few fences) and you'll find yourself at the top. Its a road the whole way so plenty of room to walk. Good moderate hike, some nice elevation gain but not too challenging. Great view from the top of the surrounding mountains. Only okay few of the ocean. Didn't see a single person the whole hike.

Extremely windy conditions at the beach prevented us from fully enjoying the beautiful coast. There were some very interesting structures made from wood that provide some respite from the biting cold wind.

We hiked this and then did the ridge trail out and back a bit. It was very pretty from up high, I would recommended heading up the bluff for. Enter views.

The trail is off limits and is private property. The owner threatened to call the police if I didn't leave.

Group and I went the whole 8 mile or so loop. The two Beaches were definitely the highlights of this hike. Going from Beaches back to the parking lot using the loop was a good workout. We used the hidden trail back.... I don't recommend that part! Otherwise, this was my most memorable hike yet.
