Explore Big Sur's Calla Lily Valley

Calla Lily Valley

Leisurely walk to the beautiful Calla Lily Valley. Beautiful views of the beach. Bluff lined with succulents and wildflowers. Frolic in gorgeous wildflowers.

Parking is available along the dirt pullout at Gate 19 for Garrapata State Park, near mile-marker 63. Signs are small and difficult to see. Follow the path between the guide wires and take the right fork, heading north to the bluff overlooking the beach. Continue north and follow the trail down the stairs to Doud Creek, where the Calla Lilies bloom in the valley in late winter and spring. Follow the trail through the valley out to the beach.

Streams And Valleys

As some previous posts mentioned there are no signs indicating the location of the valley. I used Google maps to guide me to a parking location and I then walked the trail down to the valley. It's really beautiful, despite me going after the spring blooming season. There is a small stream that runs through the valley, nothing too treacherous but just be aware as you traverse the rocks. You can then take the path to either the top of the hill where it is covered in beautiful wild flowers and overlooking the beach. The other option is to walk through the valley where it opens up to the beach. It's really a site.

Awesome

Amazing views and easy to access! The wild flowers on the hillside take your breath away

Always Amazing

This valley is really amazing no matter when you go, but to get the best flowers definitely stop and head down to see them between early February through early March!
