Starting in a redwood forest along Partington Creek, this trail then moves through majestic oaks to a fireroad that returns you to Highway 1. The Tin House is a fascinating feature of the route, built in 1944 by Lathrop Brown, a former Congressman from New York.
This hike is a one-mile stretch with some steep climbs. The experience includes crossing a wooden bridge and descending into a 60-foot tunnel. Make your way through the tunnel and emerge on the beach.
Located inside the park, this short half mile trail is sure to thrill you. The walk itself is almost all flat ground, and ends in a view of McWay Falls, an 80-foot plume of water dropping dramatically to the Pacific Ocean. When you stay in Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park cabins there will always be plenty to see and do.
