The storm closed Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park
California officials say the storm has closed Big Sur State Park, which is famous for its breathtaking views of a waterfall on the beach.
Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park along Highway 1 will remain closed until further notice “due to storm damage and hazardous conditions,” state parks officials said.
Downed trees and landslides damaged the park’s trails, including a half-mile hike to an overlook at McVay Falls, which plunges 80 feet down a cliff to the beach below.
The park is also known for hiking trails that climb over 3,000 feet, redwood groves, and snorkeling.
The park’s eco-friendly campgrounds reopened Jan. 25 for reservation holders, officials said.
Parts of highway 1 remain closed or regulate traffic The California Department of Transportation said after the landslides were caused by a series of storms known as “atmospheric rivers” that hit the state.
According to state parks officials, the park is named for a “respected pioneer” in the Big Sur area.
