McWay Falls and Saddle Rock

McWay Falls and Saddle Rock Professional Review and Guide

"McWay Falls pours 80 feet onto a sandy pocket beach along the edge of the Pacific at the mouth of McWay Canyon (cover photo). The incredibly scenic waterfall drops off the granite bluff in a wooded beach cove lined with offshore rocks. A handicap-accessible trail leads to a viewing area of McWay Cove and the cataract on the 1 00-foot-high bluffs. The pristine beach itself is not accessible. On the south side of the bay is a footpath to a scenic overlook at a cypress-shaded picnic area adjacent to Saddle Rock."
