travelinjo- Thanks for the compliment. I wanted to give a little back to the Fodors community and I thought this trip report would be a great way of doing that.

I too agree that you can return to the same city multiple times and still find something new and exciting. My initial reaction was somewhat of a kneejerk, but I also believe that one can enjoy the "major attractions" and experience the essence of a city and have a rewarding travel experience all in a well planned weekend.

I am considering a get away to Big Sur in September (or could wait until December). Love to hike, and plan to hike into Pfeiffer Park and Ventana Wilderness. However, it appears that the fire damage was pretty extensive and many trails are still closed. Did you hike any of these areas? Should I rearrange my trip? My main intention is to see the redwoods and enjoy the hiking in the area.

September weather wise will be better. Winter is our rainy season.

I did not see any visible fire damage, although some of the trails were closed. My advice would be to check the websites of the parks you plan to hike in as they should be updated with any info about trail closures.
