If you only have a single day to drive along Highway 1 and do a little hiking, these two trails are a great place to start.

McWay Waterfall Trail quickly take you to arguably the most dramatic lookout along the Big Sur coast, and the Ewoldsen Trail takes you into a lush redwood forest with stream.

And as a bonus, they both start from the same parking lot.

McWay Waterfall Trail (.64 mile)
You've probably seen the pictures, but of course it's better in person. This is an easy must-see walk.

A well maintained .64 mile roundtrip that quickly takes you to the falls viewing area. A few steps beyond is a bench with more coastal views.

Ewoldsen Trail (4.5 miles)
Located right across the parking lot from the Waterfall Trail above. Another must see.

A moderate to strenuous 4.6 mile roundtrip, this trail has it all from huge Redwood groves and rocky streams to ocean vistas. The trail starts off easy, and is worth even a quick look.
