Hike Request

NOTE: Mitteldorf will be closed until further notice for Cal Fire’s Palo Corona Fuels Reduction Project. Please check with our office for the latest schedule at 831-625-5523.

Because Williams Canyon Road is a critical access point for emergency response teams, it has been designated as a priority in the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection’s (Cal Fire’s) Palo Corona Fuels Reduction Project. In order for Cal Fire to complete this work, Mitteldorf Preserve will be closed until further notice. Their hand crews will be reducing trees that may fall on the road as well as dead standing trees left from the Soberanes Fire. This effort will be hugely beneficial to BSLT by making Mitteldorf Preserve safer for our future camp programs and all visitors to the property – and most importantly ensuring that emergency responders have clear access in an emergency!

Supporters of Big Sur Land Trust may hike dawn to dusk at Glen Deven Ranch in Big Sur and Marks Ranch in Salinas by reservation only.

When your Hike Request is received, we'll contact you to confirm your reservation and send you a liability waiver. After we receive your signed waiver(s) we will send you maps, gate codes, etc. for your hike. Please call (831) 625-5523 option 3 with questions or to reserve a hike by phone. Please allow up to 24 hours (during office hours Monday through Friday) for a response. Requests prior to holidays require more advance notice.
