Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park (SP) – McWay Falls – McWay Cove

Ewoldsen trail, Slates Hot Springs, Monterey County, California, United States


Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park offers a dramatic meeting of land and sea—attracting visitors, writers, artists and photographers from around the world. The same geologic,
climate and marine processes that shape the character of this beautiful park keep it undeveloped, susceptible to natural forces. Wildfires and landslides are common.
The steep slopes of the Santa Lucia Range and the rugged coast embody the essence of the frontier spirit and individualism of its early settlers. Visitors may hike, scuba dive, fish and explore the coastal overlook. Park temperatures range from the mid-80s at higher elevations inland to the mid-40s, with heavy winter rains and frequent coastal fog This state park is named after Julia Pfeiffer Burns, a well respected pioneer woman in the Big Sur country. The park stretches from the Big Sur coastline into nearby 3,000-foot ridges. It features redwood, tan oak, madrone, chaparral, and an 80-foot waterfall that drops from granite cliffs into the ocean from the Overlook Trail. A panoramic view of the ocean and miles of rugged coastline is available from the higher elevations along the trails east of Highway 1
