This scenic hike along the windswept headlands of Garrapata State Park epitomizes the rugged splendor of the California coast. It boasts a picturesque wooden footbridge over a creek, a wild?ower bonanza in springtime, and two dramatic viewpoints on twin knolls. Soberanes Point is the portal to the big, beautiful Big Sur coast. This is a superb coastal sampler. The wooden footbridge above Soberanes Creek sets the tone for a hike on a trail developed to do justice to the panorama. Shortly after setting off from the trailhead, you come to a trail junction. The trail to the right is about 0.2 mile long and leads to a viewpoint. If time permits, you can explore that stitch either at the beginning of your hike or when you return to the trailhead at the end of this hike.
