POINT LOBOS RANCH - NEW PROPERTY NOT OPEN TO PUBLIC USE PENDING FACILITY DEVELOPMENT

DOLAN FIRE - WHAT'S OPEN UPDATE

  • California State Parks has reopened Point Lobos State Natural Reserve and Andrew Molera State Park for active recreation. Some walking trails are open, and parking is available to vehicles on a limited basis. Social distancing protocols of maintaining a 6-ft distance and wearing masks are required.

  • Also opened is the Soberanes Canyon Trail in Garrapata State Park –located on the east side of Highway 1.  California State Parks continues to work to increase access to state park units where compliance with state and local public health ordinances can be achieved.

    Due to the Dolan Fire burning across the southern region of Monterey County, California State Parks urges the public to avoid traveling to impacted areas/park units in Monterey County due to safety and health concerns for any visitors. Air quality remains poor throughout the state.

  • Current Park Closures
    The following State Parks, including all campgrounds, day use areas, and hiking trails, are already closed due to fire and/or traffic concerns on Highway 1 in the greater vicinity of the Dolan Fire: 

    • Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park
    • John Little State Natural Reserve
    • Limekiln State Park
    • Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park
    • Point Sur State Historic Park

    California State Parks is asking for the public’s cooperation at this time when our state is severely impacted by the multiple fires burning throughout the state, including fires in Monterey County and in neighboring Santa Cruz and San Benito counties. Your assistance is appreciated!

About Point Lobos Ranch

This property is new and not currently available for public use, pending necessary planning, facility development and staffing.

The purpose of the Point Lobos Ranch property, in Monterey County, is to preserve and protect an extremely scenic portion of the northern Big Sur Coast, an area offering spectacular views of Carmel Bay and the Pacific Ocean coastline. The property contains one of the world's largest native Monterey Pine forests, examples of the rare Gowen cypress and areas of the rare maritime chaparral plant community. The property and surrounding public lands provide mountain lion habitat, and its San Jose Creek provides steelhead spawning grounds. The property contains significant Native American archaeological sites and an early twentieth century complex of ranch buildings.
