First it was the fire, then the rain. Firefighters and mudslides. And now cracks in the Pfeiffer Bridge have finished the job.
You might think “Well, I’ll just drive up from the south.” Check the map: Nacamiento-Ferguson Road is closed too, and there’s mudslide repair all along Hwy 1.
Here are the parks I know are closed right now:
• Andrew Molera State Park
• Limekiln State Park
• Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park
• Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park
• Partington Cove Trail
Don’t despair if you’re visiting and really wanted to get a taste of this part of the California coast.
Point Lobos State Natural Reserve is open, as is the beach at Garrapata State Park. (the east side of Garrapata is still closed but is expected to open later this Spring)
So, it will be quite a while until you can cruise down Hwy 1 to San Simeon, but there’s still plenty to see and do right in the neighborhood.
