Buzzard’s Roost

Buzzard’s Roost Professional Review and Guide

"The Buzzard’s Roost Trail begins as a streamside stroll along the Big Sur River through groves of bay laurel, oak, and huge old-growth redwoods. Switchbacks wind up the forested hillside slope to Pfeiffer Ridge. The trail forms a 1 .7-mile loop along the shrublined ridge. From the 1,050-foot Buzzard’s Roost are far-reaching views of the Santa Lucia Mountains and the Pacific Ocean."
