Big Sur Waterfalls: Famous California Coastal natural waterfalls near Big Sur; Beautiful Big Sur Waterfalls...

Big Sur Waterfalls: Beautiful natural waterfalls are one of the fantastic attractions of the extreme picturesque environment know as the Big Sur, the rugged terrain of the Big Sur Coast provides the perfect geography for beautiful waterfalls and there are several famous and impressive ones that are quite spectacular at times during the rainy season (Dec-May). Most Big Sur waterfalls are seasonal and the flow of the waterfall varies from a trickle to a torrent depending on the season and rainfall, famous McWay Falls is one of the exceptions and during moderately wet years other famous Big Sur waterfalls like the popular Pfeiffer Falls and beautiful Limekiln Falls (LIMEKILN STATE PARK CLOSED BECAUSE OF FIRE DAMAGE; posted 07/25/2009) are nice into the summer.

One famous Big Sur Waterfall that is only spectacular after big rains is Black Swift Falls; located at the Ragged Point Inn and Resort; this is the highest waterfall on the Big Sur Coast, falling straight down for more than three hundred feet Black Swift Falls it is the highest on the whole Central California Coast. The falls at Ragged Point gained their name from the ''Black Swift,'' a rarely seen endangered bird which makes its moss and mud nests exclusively on steep cliffs in the coastal waterfall environment. To help protect the endangered bird's unique habitat the upper waterfall area is closely monitored and the area is off limits to the public.

McWay Falls: Located at the beach of Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park which is 13 miles south of Big Sur on Pacific Coast Highway 1 (37 miles south of Carmel); parking is available in a parking lot at the state park. Follow the short Waterfall Overlook Trail and you will reach a view of an enchanting 80 foot McWay Falls that empties into a beautiful but unreachable rocky cliff surrounded cove; the trail continues on past McWay Falls a short distance to a historic stone house ruins but regretfully no hiking trail goes down to the beach where the base of the falls is so MacWay falls like Black Swift Falls is sort of unapproachable. This spring fed waterfall often flows nicely even during the dry season. click for photos and more waterfall trail information

Canyon Falls: Is also located at Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park which is 13 miles south of Big Sur on Pacific Coast Highway 1; Canyon Falls is a 30 ft. cascade on a little creek that flows into McWay Creek.
