The waterfall is stunning, dropping some 80 feet onto a pristine beach in an enchanting cove. It is a short 0.6-mile round trip hike to a viewpoint for McWay Falls, which can be reached directly from Highway One or from parking areas withing Julia Pfieffer Burns State Park.
Secondly, how do I get to McWay Falls? The best place to get to McWay Falls is from Falls Trail just past the entrance to Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park. You'll pay a day use fee to park here, but the Falls Trail goes under Pacific Coast Highway via a tunnel, making it a safer option than jockeying for a parking spot along busy Highway 1.

McWay Falls can still be seen from the section of the trail that is open. This wheelchair accessible trail can be accessed from the south parking lot or the stairs near the entrance kiosk.
Can you swim at Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park?
No there is no where to swim. There's no access. In order to view the falls you have to walk in from the main road and when you arrive you're actually standing on the side of a cliff - there isn't a way down and I think it would be incredibly dangerous.
