Description

Begin the trail from parking lot (no stream crossing necessary) and head through the trees. You'll first hike down logged steps then cross the meadow with campsites. Next you hike through a grove of eucalyptus trees, along the north side of the river. This is followed by some logged steps that lead to the top of the bluffs. You'll be rewarded by a beautiful view on both sides of the Big Sur and Monterey Bay coastline. When you are done taking in the views return by the same route.

Trail closed "due to storm damage". From the look of the signs, it's been closed quite a while, and isn't going to be reopened any time soon.
