Day Hikes around Big Sur

We followed this trail hoping to make a loop onto the Gamboa trail and back over Cone Peak. However, the Gamboa trail was extremely overgrown, so we continued along to Cook Spring Camp instead. The camp was pleasant and deserted though not particularly stunning.
There are some impressive ocean views, but you may wind up looking out over a sea of fog.
Also important to note is that many cars have to stop just past the Vicente Camp trailhead, due to a very rough section of Cone Peak Road. From this point it is almost 3 miles to the trailhead, and the road can get very hot for walking.
