Big Sur & Ventana Wilderness Map
by Wilderness Press, 2020.
Big Sur stretches more than 90 miles from Carmel, California, south to San Simeon. It is hemmed in by the Pacific Ocean to the west and the Santa Lucia Range to the east. Several hundred miles of trails crisscross the vast area. Discover the best of it with this four-color topographic map. The large, beautifully detailed map is 38.25" x 24.75", and it contains all the details you need to explore.
On one side, the map features the northern half of Big Sur and the Ventana Wilderness—amidst the vast Los Padres National Forest. Inset maps of Andrew Molera State Park, Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park, and Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park give you a closer look at these popular destinations. The other side showcases the southern half of the area, including Big Creek State Reserve, Limekiln State Park, and Silver Peak Wilderness.
This third edition of the map shows every major road (along with minor and unpaved roads), and it includes trails, trailheads, campgrounds, parking, picnic areas, gas stations, ranger stations, waterways, peaks, and more. As an added bonus, the map calls out 11 of the top hikes in Big Sur, including four short hikes, three day hikes, and four backpacking trips.
When you’re finished, fold the map back to the convenient size of 4.13" x 8.75". It is lightweight, durable, waterproof, and it fits in your backpack or back pocket. So you can carry it with you on your Big Sur adventures! Use the map alone, or pair it with Hiking & Backpacking Bug Sur for even more great information.
