Pico Blanco Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"Pico Blanco Road is an unpaved, vehicle-restricted road that winds through the mountains under the shadow of Pico Blanco. The road parallels and descends to the Little Sur River. En route are magnificent views of Pico Blanco’s north face. The road is on private land with a right-of-way for hikers. The hike begins on a mountain saddle at Bottchers Gap at an elevation of 2,050 feet. The road/trail descends 1 ,1 00 feet to a bridge crossing the river at Pico Blanco Boy Scout Camp. The camp was donated to the boy scouts by William Randolph Hearst in 1948. Redwoods planted between 1910 and 1921 surround the camp. An optional two-mile side trip leads from the road to the Little Sur River Camp about half way into the hike."

"This route leads 7.4 miles to Pico Blanco Camp. You can approach it as a strenuous day hike, a one- to three-night out-and-back, or a point-topoint trip. On a two- to three-night trip, consider staying at Little Sur Camp (2.6 miles from Bottchers Gap) or Jackson Camp (5.2 miles from Bottchers Gap), then hiking on to Pico Blanco Camp ("
