Paul’s Slide Opens today

 

Paul’s Slide (PM 21.6)
Paul’s Slide reopens this morning at 9 am to the public 24/7, with one-way reversing traffic control with flaggers; which means a lane of travel is open 24/7.

JUST A REMINDER THERE IS NO CAMPING BETWEEN THE BRIDGE AND PAUL’S SLIDE. THE CLOSEST CAMPING IS LIMEKILN, THEN KIRK CREEK, THEN PLASKETT. CAMPING IS NOT ALLOWED ON THE SIDE OF THE HIGHWAY. GIVEN THE ILLEGAL CAMPFIRE THAT TRIGGERED THE SOBERANES FIRE LAST YEAR, LOCALS WILL BE EXTRA VIGILANT IN REPORTING ALL CAMPERS, WITH OR WITHOUT CAMPIRES, AND CALLING 911 ON CAMPFIRES, WHICH CARRY A $5000 FINE, PLUS SUPRESSION COSTS. PLEASE SEE MARCUS FOSTER’S COMMENT BELOW FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION.
