Visit one of the popular southern most hiking trails of Big Sur offering a majestic view of the westward of the coast! This is how Salmon Creek Falls trail is usually defined by most of the tourists. The happiest part of this trail is you can hike as long as you wish to and can return back. However, walking towards the southern part of the trail, you can see a fork where the trail heads up to the hill. If you take the left fork, the trail will take you down to the spot where the beautiful Salmon Creek Falls formed small pools. Don’t miss to take a snap keeping the falls as a perfect backdrop for the picture. From this point you can return back to your starting point. Else after returning back to the main trail, you can move ahead and enjoy the panoramic view of the Highway 1.

However, be careful while hiking as certain spots of the trail crosses through rocky hillside.

Enjoy this hiking trail if you are fond of steady workout sessions.

Salmon Creek Falls Trail Reviews & Ratings

  • Loved it. Beauty at its best if it's remained untouched. But I am sharing these pictures because I have faith in humanity that they will value the nature and will try to preserve and keep it clean so others can enjoy the beauty as well.

  • Really nice hike. Awesome rocks. Lush vegetation

  • Easy and short hike to the falls that is family/kid friendly. There is tons of poison oak...

  • A little bit challenge to get there..trail is not mark down & to get near cascade at the end rocks are very slippery

  • There is a short trail to a waterfall which is where most of the people go. There is also a nice hike to several backcountry campsites. Dogs are allowed. A beautiful place!
