Hike: Mt Manuel

One of my favorite trails on the Big Sur coast, the Mt. Manuel trail has stunning views of both the coast and the Ventana Wilderness, a steady grade and few people. A little over 4 miles with 3000' of gain it is a great workout also. I usually don't hike it this time of year but the drought has made the trail passable although it can be a bit treacherous in spots. Starting on HWY 1 we will get a chance to check out the park and add a couple miles. 3000' and 10 miles. Dress in layers, sturdy boots advised, water and bathroom at trailhead only. Poles recommended. Meet at Sears 41st ave ready to go before 7:15 or at the Rio Road park and ride at 8:00 or on the HWY 1 outside Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park across from the lodge at 8:45. Please put your meeting location in the RSVP comment.

    Sounds like a great hike John. I read the description. Is this hike 4 miles total? Or 10 miles total? Also, is there a parking lot across from the lodge? It's been a while since I've been to Big Sur. The area is so beautiful! Thanks for clarifying my above questions.

    When you get up to the ridgeline, you might consider taking a use trail which goes SE along the ridge for about 1/4 mile to a viewpoint I think is a bit nicer than the usual viewpoint (and would be something different) - so is about same distance as continuing on to usual viewpoint.
    FYI am out of hiking for awhile due to macroscopic tear in plantar fascia so cannot join you.
