During a trip to Big Sur, we planned on heading to McWay Falls, a waterfall that empties directly into the Pacific. Unfortunately, you can’t get too close, but still. Gorgeous view anyway.
We originally thought it’d be a 1-2 mile hike to the falls, but it turned out to be like .1 mile from the parking lot. (So I loved this area from the start.) Just pass through a short tunnel, walk up a short trail, and done. There you are.
As beautiful as the view of the falls was, if you turn around from the viewpoint, this was the scene directly behind you. Such a stunning viewpoint, either direction you look.
