Pfeiffer Falls Trail

From Paul Rogers of the San Jose Mercury News:

For generations, it was one of the most popular attractions in Big Sur.

Thousands of people every year hiked up the Pfeiffer Falls Trail, a 1.5-mile round trip route through a redwood-lined stream in Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park leading to a 60-foot waterfall.

But the trail and six of its wooden bridges, stairs, signs, hand railings and an observation deck, were destroyed in the 2008 Basin Complex Fire. The landscape has long since recovered. And now a new trail has risen from the ashes after years of back-breaking work interrupted by floods, more fires, budget shortfalls, the COVID pandemic and other delays.

“This trail is going to make a lot of people’s day,” said Marcos Ortega, superintendent of state parks’ Big Sur sector, on a recent hike through the redwood forest. “It’s kid-friendly. You get to see a waterfall. You’re in the redwoods. It gives you the full Big Sur experience.”
