Valley View Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"Beginning alongside Pfeiffer Redwood Creek, this semi-loop route meanders past some of the park’s largest coast redwoods. Climbing above the canyon floor, the trail offers views down the Big Sur River gorge."

"Pfeiffer–Big Sur State Park is the unofficial capitol of the Big Sur Coast. The hike follows a gentle trail up through shady redwood groves to 60-foot Pfeiffer Falls, then climbs a challenging grade up to the Valley View overlook, where visitors have the rare chance of seeing North America’s largest bird, the California condor, soaring in its natural habitat."
