Staying at Cambria and will be at Hearst Castle for the first tour of the day. After that have the rest of the day to do the Big Sur on the way to Monterey. Not interested in hiking, just want to see the most notable sights that are easily accessible from highway 1. I have been doing my research and have the top sights to see as:
Elephant Seal Rookery (4 miles N of Hearst), Ragged Point, famous view of McWay Falls (Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park), Bixby Creek & Rocky Creek bridges (between Point Sur & Point Lobos), Point Lobos State Reserve (nr Carmel). Stop at Nepenthe café.
Are these places easily found? Easily accessible? Well signposted? Having just an afternoon I don't want to spend too much time going off the beaten track.
