Salmon Creek Waterfall & Cave
"The quieter you become, the more you are able to hear"
To get to the trailhead: Salmon Creek Trail is located on a large horseshoe bend in Highway One, 3.7 miles north of Ragged Point Inn
(or 26 miles north of Cambria). From the other direction, drive 33.6
miles south from Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park (home of McWay Falls)
or 41.6 miles from the Nepenthe Restaurant turnoff in Big Sur. The
trail to Salmon Creek Falls is located right on the bend in the road,
south of the out-of-service Salmon Creek Ranger Station and Buckeye Trail.
Personal Experience: Talk about a majestic, magic land! This is the largest waterfall I have ever visited (besides Niagra Falls, but that spot blows everything out of the water). It is 120 ft.! We found this spot by sheer chance, which is always rewarding. When we go up to Big Sur now it's gotten to the point where we drive on highway 1 and look for any soft spots that may have a trail. This has become extremely rewarding many times. Upon our short hike we also came upon caves in the same vicinity. There were people camping out here also. I'm not sure if you need to pay to camp here or if they just went for it but this is definitely a supreme camping spot!
