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.

Beautiful. The best so far in Big Sur

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.
