AAA Editor Notes
Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park, s. on SR 1, encompasses 964 acres of coastal redwood and chaparral on the Big Sur River. Hiking trails wind through groves of redwoods and other conifers, stands of oaks, maples, alders and willows, and open meadows where black-tail deer might be spotted. Rangers conduct naturalist and campfire programs Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day. Year-round overnight camping is permitted.
Note: Although it partially reopened in May 2017, most of the park remains closed due to ongoing impacts caused by the Soberanes fire in 2016 and flooding from heavy rains in early 2017. Check the Caltrans website for traffic conditions and phone ahead for the latest park updates.
