Salmon Creek Falls
About Salmon Creek Falls in Big Sur, California
On your drive up the Big Sur Coast stop off at the Salmon Creek Ranger Station and do a short hike up the Salmon Creek Falls. It’s only about a quarter mile up to the falls from a short trail that begins at the sharp bend in the highway near the ranger station. From the station the Buckeye Trail climbs high up into the mountains to the north above the ocean. In the other direction the Salmon Creek Trail begins south then turns inland to follow the creek valley above the falls. There are several ways to venture deep into the Silver Peak Wilderness in Los Padres National Forest if you want a bigger hike or even a backpacking trip. For most of us, the short walk to the falls is enough to satisfy our need to see nature along this scenic coast.
