big sur mapsApprox. 12 mi. from the trailhead at Big Sur Station (on the land of Pieffer Big Sur State Park)

Not usually considered a day hike. The Pine Ridge Trail gets more foot traffic than any other trail in the Los Padres National Forest. It is a popular take off point for many longer treks thoughout the Ventana Wilderness and the northern end of the forest.

Sykes is can be crowded during the summer and on holidays. Best time is after a couple of big storms in the winter. After the rain, it is then not a mud bath then and you'll have it all to yourself. You will need a wilderness permit to be in this area, as always check to see if open fires are permissable at the back country camps you will be visiting, wild fire danger is great in theis area.
