Day 1: We will meet at the SRWC at 800am, load the van up with some gears and necessities, and hit the roads toward Big Sur (7 hrs. 394 mi) stopping on the way for lunch and to check out some great views. Upon arrival at the campsite, we will set the camp up, make dinner and get some sleeps for the next day.

Day 2: After breakfast we will hike the 8-mile loop Creamery Meadow Trail in Andrew Molera State Park and take in the panoramic views and access the beach. We will have lunch along the trail and then head to Partington Cove to relax before going to McWay Falls for the sunset. We then return to camp to make dinner and warm by the campfire. 

Day 3: Once we fill our bellies we will go on a morning hike along the 5-mile Buzzards Roost Trail. Be sure to watch your step for Banana Slugs! We return to camp to pack up and have lunch. We then make our way back to campus. Wow, what a trip!
