One of my favorite Big Sur hikes, the Mount Manuel Trail begins in the Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park parking lot but heads deep into the Ventana backcountry. The trail begins as a lazy incline, wrapping around the massive Mount Manuel, but on the backside begins to wind in and out of various forest types and through some pretty dynamic terrain. Vistas of Ventana Wilderness on the backside of the mountain are priceless. To complete this trail requires an all day hike, but it's also great for just a few hours and then turning around.

The Mount Manuel trail is a moderately strenuous hike that rewards you with great views of the coast and Big Sur. You can hike almost as long as you like, but I mostly take short day hikes.
