Hike through unspoiled wilderness and scenic coastline on numerous hiking trails in Carmel and the Big Sur region. Try the Molera 8-mile loop in Andrew Molera State Park for a hike through bluffs and beaches. Short on time? Try the McVey Waterfall Trail, a less than a mile easy trek in Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park with an 80-foot waterfall along a sandy beach. For easier hiking try the Coastal Recreation Trail, which starts at Lover’s Point Park in Pacific Grove, and offers coastal views at every step.
