Steep towards end. Lots of switchbacks and very little flat ground.

We hiked Buzzards Roost after hiking Pfeiffer Falls. It was challenging but doable. Trail was well maintained. View at the top was great! Beware of the poison oak, but that's not uncommon at Big Sur.

I'd rate it Moderate to Kick your butt! But them I'm not a young sprightly hiker. Tough climb for me, but I did it, and there's a good wide view at the top. Interesting walking through burnt trees from a fire in 2013. Lots of poison oak so be careful. If you're older, use a pole!
