During Wet Months:
Sometimes rain will cause the closure of unpaved parking areas. Lots usually reopen 1-2 days after the rain stops. Parking lots most commonly closed during or after rain are:
- Zuma Canyon Lot at Bonsall Drive.
- Rocky Oaks Main Lot at Mulholland Hwy.
- Peter Strauss Ranch extended unpaved lot at Mulholland Hwy.
- Cheeseboro Canyon Parking Lot off of Chesebro Road.
Use Caution and be Conscientious. During or shortly after rain, hazardous trail conditions may occur: including slippery trails, rock falls, tree falls, mud flows, and mud pits, especially in recent fire areas. When these conditions occur, recreational trail use is not recommended. Regular trail use can usually begin 1-2 days after the rain stops. If you notice hazardous trail conditions, resource damage or would like updates, please contact our Visitor Center--805-370-2301.
