Majestic Beauty - Day Hike in North Big Sur (ages 16 and older)

ID : 13241   
« back to classes page
ClassGraphic Big Sur’s largest state park, Andrew Molera, has everything you could want in a Big Sur hike. But knowing exactly where to hike, and when, can lead to truly magical experiences. Gary will guide you on a hike to see the rare elfin redwood grove and the wild and vibrant coastline as you internalize nature’s beauty. You will begin with a serene morning walk on the seashore and return by way of the groomed state park trail. The early start time allows you to walk during the low tide, and there's also fewer people in the park!

Famed author Henry Miller wrote, “It was here in Big Sur that I first learned to say amen.” This is a hike for those who want to lose themselves in the majestic beauty of one of the world’s most beautiful coastlines. The goal is to use this time, surrounded by natural beauty, to cleanse, inspire, and offer a kind of meditation, rest, and sanctuary.
