Strolling

For a pleasant walk that the kids or those with limited athleticism can enjoy, these Big Sur strolls are a great way to get a closeup look at the natural surroundings.

JULIA PFEIFFER BURNS STATE PARK The Waterfall and Overlook Trails offer stunning views of McWay Falls and the Saddle Rock formation. This perfect little cove looks like the tropics with its emerald waters and overhanging palm trees. This property was gifted by Helen and Lathrop Brown to the state, in the name of pioneer woman Julia Pfeiffer Burns. The gift included their home, the Waterfall House, and the Saddle Rock Ranch acreage, reaching north to Partington Cove and east to the ridge.

A level stroll on well-maintained decomposed granite trail leads to the terrace of the ruins of Waterfall House. Be prepared to dodge European visitors on this trail the word must be out about its beauties.

While at Julia Pfeiffer Burns, stroll back up the canyon to enjoy the redwoods, streams and a series of small waterfalls along the streamside trail. This is what paradise, Big Sur style, looks like!

PFEIFFER STATE PARK This park has many lovely trails, both in open meadows and along the river, for the leisurely enjoyment of campers and visitors. There is an entrance fee.
