Partington Cove, located in Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park, is one of Big Sur’s hidden jewels. It’s a short hike with just enough exertion to make hikers feel they worked for the views, with vistas that show how Big Sur earned the nickname “Little Yosemite.” The entire hike, down and back, can be completed in an hour or less, although there’s enough to see to spend a half day. It’s a great excursion for beginning hikers; the trail is so broad and distinct that it’s impossible to get lost.
