Moderate backpacking trails in cencal area

Anyone know of a nice trail to take a beginner hiker in the winter months, I was looking at soda creek in Big Sur, but Sierra np also has a lot to offer please let me know. Probably a max of 7 miles out and back weekend trip.

I recommend buying a Nat Geo Trails Illustrated Map from you nearest REI and study the trails and the contours to finds something you may enjoy.  There are hundreds of trail options to choose from!

Also, visit the SNF website(s) to confirm that any past closures due to wildfires are indeed lifted!

good luck!
