Pfeiffer Bypass Trail closure 4/11 and other helpful information

From the Unified Command. 4/10/17

A reminder that the Pfeiffer Bypass Trail will have a hard closure tomorrow, Tuesday 4/11/17. This will be necessary due to a PG&E power pole rerouting. This rerouting will be done via helicopter and the area is adjacent to the trail. Hours of closure will be approximately 8:00 am o 4:00 pm. The closure will be staffed by State Parks at the north and south trail heads to allow for use when safe throughout the operational period. This operation may be postponed due to inclement weather.

There is NO access allowed across the Pfeiffer Canyon bridge area! Please take the trail through the park that the volunteers and CCCs spent so many hours working on so you could get back and forth. If anyone is injured in the bridge area work will stop until an investigation is done, possibly delaying work for quite some time.

Dogs are allowed on the Pfeiffer Canyon trail through the park, on leash only!

Thank you!

  1. Is their any idea of when the drive from San Fran along Highway 1 will be re-opened? I read somewhere predicted 30th September 2017

    • That is correct.

  2. Hi Martha
    Is the bypass trail still only open to locals, or would it be possible for cyclists to walk or carry their bikes through?

    • The bypass trail is open to locals only. Bicyclists cannot walk or carry their bikes through nor can they ride on Highway 1 inside the closure. aka “Big Sur Island” at this point.
