Day Hikes around Big Sur

Good, well-maintained trail to connect Salmon Creek to Villa Creek. Lot's of poison oak - even more so than the Cruickshank trail. The trail is exposed and hot for much of the way and doesn't cross any substantial creeks or have the pine groves that other Big Sur trails are known for. Also - you can hear highway traffic for much of the way. The trail is just high enough that you are above the fog bank for most of the way, allowing for awesome views above the clouds. Buckeye camp is very spacious and sits in a neat meadow with a fire pit.
