McWay Falls is easily one of the most unique and majestic sights along California's coastline. The 80-foot waterfall is located in Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park in Big Sur and runs year-round. This rare fresh waterfall tumbles down a steep granite cliff into a picturesque cove and directly into the Pacific Ocean. Visitors can view the scenic fall from a 0.5 mile "Overlook Trail" easily accessible from the entrance gate of Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park off of Highway 1.
