Sycamore Canyon Rd. & Pfeiffer Beach

From CPOA:

In anticipation of reopening the Pfeiffer Beach Day Use Area, the USFS will be doing some repairs and cleanup on Sycamore Canyon Road some distance up from the beach toward Highway 1. This may cause some delay and problem for anyone needing to access Clear Ridge and Front Hill Roads and that general area.

Hours of work will be from 7:00 AM to 5:30 PM and that part of the road will be closed. The USFS recommends accessing Clear Ridge via the Brewers Bridge gate.

This work started on October 3rd and may continue through October 13th, the opening day of Pfeiffer Canyon Bridge. If more specific details are provided to us by the USFS, we will forward them to you.

Also from CPOA:

There have been recent discussions by CPOA and local residents with the US Forest Service about the over use of Pfeiffer Beach and Sycamore Canyon Road that provides access to the beach. These recent discussions are, in fact, a continuation of discussions that have spanned over 20 years with no significant improvement in the management of this worldwide destination. With visitation exceeding all records year after year, there is an ever increasing health and safety issue that needs to be addressed by the USFS.

You may download a letter from CPOA and an attachment from the Big Sur Volunteer Fire Brigade, by clicking HERE, that has been sent to the new Acting Forest Supervisor requesting immediate attention to this growing problem. (PDF file, 3 pages, 157KB).

Please read these letters by Butch and Martha. This is a serious issue with little time to resolve before opening of the bridge and the beach.

  1. Awesome articulation! Both letters are strong calls for action! Great communication about such a serious issue, with dangers and hazards clearly set forth, and a path toward resolution suggested….with a Full Stop until resolved the only sane response by the powers that be.
    Well done people!! Much appreciation🐬🐬🐬


  2. Great job! It would really emphasize the importance of this concern to list the number of fatalities, injuries, and service calls each year by first responders to Pfeiffer Beach and Sycamore Canyon Rd.
