Gorge Trail

Big Sur, California

Gorge Trail Professional Review and Guide

"The Gorge Trail leads into a narrow gorge to cascades and several swimming holes along the Big Sur River. The trail follows two short, unmaintained paths bordering the rocky east and west banks of the river. Both root-strewn paths scramble through an undeveloped area adjacent to the cascading whitewater. The headwall of the steep gorge is lush with ferns and moss-covered rocks."

The smallest hike near river, cold water pretty good in sunny day :) Old bridge now closed, so we were unable to finish trail on other side. Probably, in summer you can cross river. But March water was cold for me
