Big Sur Update

As we approach the 1-year mark since the start of the devastating Dolan Fire and its consequential mudslides that ravaged our favorite place in the world – Big Sur, we want to provide an update on where things stand.

Highway 1 is now fully open following the Rat Creek Mudslide that occurred in April. Within the last few weeks most of our favorite service roads including Plaskett Ridge Road and Los Burros road have opened. Nacimiento-Fergusson road (which suffered the most amount of damage) is still closed to the public. 

As the new fire season is well underway with the Willow fire currently burning, it is crucial to adhere to the US Forest Service fire restrictions. Already in effect is a ban on all campfires and gas stoves in non-designated fire areas. These restrictions will be in effect throughout late fall at the least. Navigating Big Sur during the fire season can be extremely difficult, please reach out to us if you are thinking of visiting and have any questions!
