Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park

This event continues a journey - experiencing the sights and life of the California State Park System. Here is an opportunity to hike among the redwoods and oak trees at Big Sur. Weather forecast calls for a clear and sunny day.

We will likely hike 10 miles (over 2,000 ft elevation gain) via Valley View Hike and Mt Manuel trails.  This is a non-BART hike.

We will meet at the parking lot just inside the ranger entry station.

Look at for my silver Venza. I will place a red cone on top of the car to find the meeting point. The trip is a good drive from the Bay Area. I estimate 2 hours from San Jose.

Directions (see GPS coordinates); the entry is near the Big Sur Lodge

Preparation: Bring plenty of water and snacks for a lunch. Proper clothing, shoes and personal protection (bug spray, etc) are suggested.

After Hike: TBD - we can visit one of the local restaurants for dinner and drink.

Contact me if there are any questions [masked]).
