Mount Manuel Trail

Big Sur, California

Mount Manuel Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Mount Manuel is the towering mountain that dominates Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park. This hike climbs to a vista point near the 3,379- foot summit. The sweeping 360-degree panoramic views extend across the entire Big Sur area, from the Santa Lucia Mountains to the expansive crenelated coastline and the sheer cliffs. The trail begins from the Oak Grove Trail and climbs up to the vista point on exposed, chaparral-covered hillsides that offer little shade."
