McWay Waterfall

Big Sur, California

Attention photographers and sunset gawkers: This scenic 80-foot waterfall is calling. McWay Falls, a creek that drops 80 feet into a blue-green cove, awaits off California's Highway 1. Just park your car at the trailhead of McWay Waterfall Trail in Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park; it's a short half-mile journey to an overlook that offers a breathtaking view of this natural wonder.
