By-pass trail parking for locals

The parking area at Big Sur Station for local residents who are using the bypass trail is at full capacity and demand for available spots is increasing with additional employees and contractors being recalled to work on the south side in anticipation of the upcoming opening of Pfeiffer Canyon Bridge. Additionally, with this additional demand for parking, there has been an increase in illegal parking in the fire lanes and in or near environmentally sensitive habitat.

As there is no additional parking available at this location, the Big Sur Chamber of Commerce and the Los Padres National Forest Association are urging employees, contractors, and residents to carpool whenever possible and to only park in designated parking areas.

Thank you,
