Ventana Big Sur Hiking
In Big Sur, you can follow the path or chart your own course. 


Whether you’re a hardcore hiker looking for a day of rugged adventure, or a nature lover just out for a stroll, Big Sur will feed your wanderer’s soul.

  • Daily Ventana Big Sur property walk: The best way to start any day at Ventana! Every morning at 10 a.m., a trained guide leads an easy one-hour walk around the property, providing historical context, interesting tidbits about the area and information on native flora and fauna. Along the way, you’ll enjoy sweeping views of the ocean, pass under towering redwoods and take in the scents and sounds of a classic Big Sur morning. You might even see a California condor or a migrating whale in the distance. Meet at Social House at 10 a.m. Comfortable hiking or running shoes with good tread recommended.
  • Coast Ridge Road: This intermediate self-guided hike departs from the path leading to the Library & Music Room and ascends up the historic dirt road along the ridgeline above the resort, providing epic views of Ventana, Post Ranch and the Big Sur Lighthouse. Hiking boots with good tread recommended.
