This short loop offers more than a mile of wave-blasted coastline, complete with sea caves and offshore stacks. The return leg includes a chance to climb the trail’s namesake peak, for a gull’s-eye view of the rugged Big Sur Coast. A lucky few may even catch a rare glimpse of the playful but elusive sea otter.
