Winding deep into the heart of the Big Sur River drainage, the lower Pine Ridge Trail from Big Sur Station to Sykes Camp is the most popular route into the Ventana Wilderness. The total elevation gain and loss along this stretch are 2380 feet and 1490 feet, respectively. The well-maintained trail winds past three other camps in the 10 miles to Sykes Camp. Expect plenty of foot traffic in summer, while spring break brings hordes of hikers to Sykes to cluster about the 100°F hot springs, which can get crowded and, at times, rowdy.
