  • Easy hikes to both the falls and kilns. Ground soft and spongy with lots of little river crossings. Impressive falls with beautiful pool at bottom. Beach attached to park also, with awesome views.

  • Good easy access. We did short hike with toddler and pregnant lady to waterfalls. Some creek crossings necessary with planks and sticks to walk on to stay dry. Beach is awesome. Not fine sand but boulders plus small grey pebbles that warmed quite nicely in sun and felt great on feet.
  • Great camping site in Big Sur. Campsites are cost together but very enjoyable. 3 short hikes are nearby and a few longer hinges are also accessible.
  • One of my favorite spots to hike and chill out along the PCH1. Every time I drive by the park I go in for a quick hike and dip my feet on the ocean. Really want to book a weekend trip and camp near the beach.
  • Best of 3 worlds... beach... trees... spring fed creek to play in... also super diligent camp hosts this year; extra clean bathrooms and never out if t.p.!
  • Beautiful trail to the waterfall, and then we watched the sunset from the beach. Was spectacular.
