Plan ahead. The Sunday of a three day weekend is typically the busiest day. Travel early in the day! Parking control staff will be at the Palomarin trailhead and we will keep you posted if it closes.
The Bear Valley and the Lighthouse visitor centers will be open throughout the weekend, including the Monday holiday. All backpack and boat-in permits have been reserved for Saturday and Sunday evenings.
