This Big Sur travel guide page reads like a trip leaving Ragged Point Inn northbound on Pacific Coast Highway 1 and describes each tourist attraction, activity, visitor point of interest or thing to do as the trip progresses north on PCH 1... ...below the trip description is a collection of VISITOR INFORMATION LINKS for Big Sur / Monterey / San Francisco ...but you can come and go from the Ragged Point Inn and Ocean View Resort from three directions; from north on Pacific Coast Highway 1, from the south Hearst Castle way on PCH 1 , and from the air. Helicopters occasionally land on the Ragged Point Resort property if you want to fly right in or Hearst has a small private landing strip on the Hearst Ranch near the Old Village of San Simeon but the closest commercial airport to the north of Hearst Castle is 80 miles, the Monterey Peninsula Airport; the closest commercial airport is the San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport it is the closest to the south, about 40 miles from Hearst Castle.

Leaving Ragged Point Inn Resort Hotel to the north on Pacific Coast Highway 1 through Gorda, Lucia, Big Sur, Carmel, Monterey, and to San Francisco:

Just south of Ragged Point the Pacific Coast Highway 1 and the landscape makes a dramatic change; driving north from the Ragged Point Resort you will need to adjust your drive times to accommodate more curves and picture taking from the many Big Sur Pacific rugged coast scenic view points.

The closest tourist attraction north of the Ragged Point Inn Ocean View Resort is Salmon Creek Falls which is 4 miles with a drive time about 15 minutes. You should at least use the pullout to stop and view the waterfall, the highway is near enough to get some good photographs when the water is high; there are short trails to hike the bottom and top of the waterfall which is a nice stretch of the legs and guarantees a few good photos too. Salmon Creek like all Big Sur rivers, streams and creeks are seasonal and quite dramatic and impressive when the water is high peaceful and tranquil when it is not. The Salmon Creek Trail is a tourist favorite hike which includes sweeping Pacific Ocean Big Sur Coast views.

There is another attractive near hiking trail 1 ½ miles north of the Salmon Creek Falls Trail, the Soda Springs hiking trail ; this hike is in a near area and similar to the Salmon Creek Trail hike but the Salmon Creek hike is probably best or at least the most popular inland Pacific Coast view hike.

Gorda Springs Cottages is the closest Big Sur lodging to the north; there are rental cottages, a restaurant, an expensive gas station (the closest gas station north or RPI) and an espresso bar/deli/general store.
