Buzzards Roost Trail Professional Review and Guide
"This trail follows the south bank of the Big Sur beneath a canopy of redwoods and tanoaks before climbing Pfeiffer Ridge. Despite the promise of gorgeous overlooks of the Santa Lucia Range and Pacific, the trail is little used. You may find yourself alone at the top with large turkey vultures that roost in the redwoods below. In summer, fog envelops the coast, obscuring views. Fog is less likely in the spring and fall, while winter views between storms are often spectacular. Strong winds are always a factor atop the open ridge—bring a windbreaker or sweater year-round."
