A few weeks ago for my brother Kyle’s birthday we decided to hike from the beautiful and rugged California Coastline in Big Sur up into the southern most sections of the Coastal Redwoods. This is possibly one of the most beautiful hikes we’ve been on. The hike is extremely diverse as you enter and exit scattered sections of Redwood groves with breathtaking ocean views throughout. The hike in is almost entirely uphill but the trail never gets too steep and is well maintained. And whenever you stop to take a breather you’re completely in awe of the beauty that encapsulates you. More posts to come when I will explain how we got a two layer birthday cake up the mountain to celebrate my brothers birthday.
