You know you're getting old when you can remember visiting JPBSP and being basically alone in the parking lot, and alone on the trail. Was in northern Cali last week anyway, so we took the opportunity to cruise PCH 1 from Monterey to JPBSP. The...More
We thoroughly enjoyed our walk about the cliffs after our drive around the park. This is a very scenic park. Our hike up the cliff area was a little bit of a workout, but well worth the effort. Take your camera with!
Since part of the park was closed it's hard to say what ii's like normally. What is available now is not worth the $10. You see the water fall in the pic above. That's it. And you better be able to walk a lot if...More
The hike to the falls is closed. Estimated reopening is in 2020.
However, there is a great view off of hwy 1. Park in a turn out for a view and a picture. Gorgeous cliffs, rocks, water and small beach. Go on a sunny day...More
This is frankly one of my favorite places ever! Although the actual park was closed, the McWay Falls was still very visible from a Hwy 1 pull-off. Being springtime, the waterfall was flowing a lot, and the different colors of the water were spectacular!
This popular Big Sur area state park along the PCH (CA-1) is indefinitely closed following damage to the park’s entrance station and restrooms from the usually stormy and wet winter. Fortunately, at least the park’s most famous sight, the beautiful McWay Falls, can still be...More
If you're just driving through to see the waterfall, avoid the parking fee and park by the road/pullover spot shortly after the entrance. You can get to the side of the road and get some really good shots. It's also faster this way.
This state park has the famous McWay Waterfall and offers a great view of Big Sur. Currently it is undergoing renovations and much needed trail improvements along the highway. There are trails in the park as well but these too are currently closed to the...More
The road is closed about 30 miles south of this park. I’d suggest if you still want to see Big Sur that you go south about 8 miles past the park to Nacemiento Road which is a gravel but decent road that crosses the mountain... More
The road is closed about 30 miles south of this park. I’d suggest if you still want to see Big Sur that you go south about 8 miles past the park to Nacemiento Road which is a gravel but decent road that crosses the mountain and takes you over to 101. It’s quite curvy but unless you’re a nervous driver it shouldn’t be a problem. It’s beautiful near the top of the mountain and unbelievable views of the entire coast. Enjoy!
