Amazing hike! Lots of wildflowers, views the whole time. Nice steady incline, not too steep, lots of switchbacks This hike makes me love Big Sur and California.

One of my favorite hikes ever!!! Beautiful views the entire time. Not difficult and extremely enjoyable. Most people were hiking out so we had the trail to ourselves on the way up!! The trail doesn’t have a stopping point so hikers need to watch the map to see when the trail ends, as it goes for miles ! Saw many lizards but also saw a large snake in the middle of the trail. Bring water. About 3.5 miles in there is a spot off the trail with spots for camping - two spots have little fire pits. Would’ve been a great spot to sleep!

What a fantastic hike. Incredible views almost the entire time. A good workout but not too challenging. Lots of switchbacks. Took us 1.5 hours to get to the turnaround and about 50 minutes to get back. Make sure to bring adequate water. Great bird watching along the way.

Great view the whole way up and down. Great little workout.
