  • Beautiful hike just off HWY 1 near Big Sur. Beautiful scenery and the waterfall was beautiful. Hike was a little rocky but not unmanageable. The scenery is worth every second.  more »
  • There were lots of rocks to climb over on this hike. It is a fairly short hike to the falls which were stunning albeit not very tall.  more »
  • Beautiful place for a stop including a bit of an adventure (; u can climb some rocks if u want to get really close to the waterfall, but it’s fun and worth it!
  • If you have an extra 30 minutes on your drive up or down Highway 1, be sure to stop here. The trail is easy, but the last 100 feet requires a bit of slippery rock scrambling to make it to pool beneath the falls.
