Highway 1 to Terrace Creek Camp Professional Review and Guide
"This 5.8-mile route along Coast Ridge Road and Terrace Creek Trail to Terrace Creek Camp can be approached as either an out-and-back or loop trip. You could continue east along the Pine Ridge Trail to swimming holes at the riverside Barlow Flat, Sykes, and Redwood Camps or return 5.3 miles to Big Sur Station via the westbound Pine Ridge Trail (see TRIP 59 Sykes & Redwood Camps, page 246). The latter route finishes with a 1.7-mile stroll south on Highway 1 to the inn. Though a strenuous day hike, the loop makes a pleasant weekend trip. To avoid excessive elevation gain and end on a moderate downhill gradient, consider starting from Big Sur Station."
