Date Hiked: June 9, 2015
General Condition: Clear (no obstacles and tread well defined)

No surprises here, I guess! Here's our one-minute clip of what it looked like near the top...

(Given the lack of rain, I was surprised at the number of flies and wasps near the top... Yet, I was equally surprised that they didn't care about bothering me! I guess that's par for the course.)

Unfortunately this trail was completely closed last week, apparently for the whole summer.

Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park: Ewoldsen Loop

Description:

The Ewoldsen Loop in Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park is likely the most diverse and rewarding dayhike a visitor to Big Sur can make. Along its approximately 4-mile length it offers sweeping coastal views, passes through beautiful oak forests, wanders along cheerfully cascading McWay Creek beneath towering redwoods, and at one point passes within a few yards of the second-largest redwood tree in Monterey County. With about 1,200' of total elevation gain, this loop should be considered moderately strenuous, but a more quintessential Big Sur day-hiking experience is hard to find.
