For the history buffs:
After passing through the specially constructed pedestrian underpass, the overlook trail comes out onto the face of a steep bluff about 100 feet above the ocean. The view includes a large sweep of ocean, miles of the Big Sur coastline, and looks directly down into McWay Cove, where a delightful little water-fall drops 80 feet from the granite cliffs. Prior to 1983, it fell directly into the sea, but a major landslide a half-mile north of the cove deposited so much sediment in McWay Cove the the waterfall now lands on a sandy beach. The “new” beach is not open to the public because the surrounding cliffs are extremely unstable.
