Soberanes Point and Whale Peak

Hiked on December 4, 2022

The hiking cars for the CS 70 Santa Cruz retreat were originally headed to Henry Cowell State Park but with the recent rain, I suggested we instead do a hike in the Big Sur and people happily obliged. Gilbert, Amogh, Ice, James, Colby, and I hiked this short loop that takes you through a high lookout point and among some pretty bluffs. Closer to the edge, there are also some routes that take you to the beach where you can climb on the rocks that the waves crash onto. If you’re just driving down the CA-1 or don’t have a whole day, I highly recommend this trail! It captures all of the beauty and awe of the Big Sur in a nice, short hike.
