Had an amazing time hiking here with the wife. Beautiful views and wondeful maintained trails. Hiked all over and highly recommended the Buzzards Roost Trail to the radio tower.

$10 to get in to park another 2 if you want a map of the paths. 4 small car parks all pretty close to each other, so cant see much of park by driving. We didnt have much time anyway so parked as near we could to stream and did a very short walk along stream shore. Ok but not spectacular. Over the road a short path 'nature walk' was just a walk through some trees where you could still see the road and nothing outstanding to see. Toilet facilities available once in car parks Disappointing

Enjoyed hiking in this park! Also liked it that you can park and walk in, thereby avoiding the parking fee. Great food & gift shop too!

This park is the best of them along Big Sur. Once you get it it feels like you are in the middle of a redwood forest. We went with my 9 year old so we weren't interested in big or long hikes. The walk along the redwoods and river was pefect for us. And theynhave a nice lodge/restaurant too.

How you like this place probably depends on your experience as a hiker. If you are not much of a hiker at all, this is a great place to go and see a few redwoods and a river. We took the Valley View trail, which has some altitude and a couple of places with some trail chiseled into by erosion, but overall the trail is probably advanced beginner at most. Lots of poison oak along the trails, so learn what it looks like. This is more of a 1-2 hour stop at most, so I would make it an addition to another stop rather than the primary target for a visit. Note that the ranger staff is AWESOME, friendly, and responsive.
