Big Sur 2015

Looks like Big Sur is getting close. Anyone have a report of it's condition? I'm thinking it will be in this week.

That sounds right to me. Need about 20k. At 20k you want a fast boat. Above 24k or so, it'll surf a houseboat.

How do you get there?

Is there parking close? Do you need to shuttle?

Parking is at the exit headed eastbound just past the roller dam and before the tunnel (Beavertail). Obey the parking signs as they will ticket. If you are coming from the west you need to use the powderhorn/Hwy 65 exit. You need to go south on 65 a ways to get back on I70 east bound.

The way the weather is this could turn out to be big tease. As mentioned, really the best when it starts breaking 20k, but there is usually surf-able stuff at 18.5+ if your local.

To get back on I-70 west bound, there is an unofficial on-ramp between the guardrails on the north west side of the overpass.
