GOLETA, CA… Los Padres National Forest officials today announced a temporary road closure on the Santa Lucia Ranger District as a result of heavy rainfall, swollen and fast-moving creeks and streams, and significant debris on the road.

Until the weather clears and crews are able to safety assess the extent of the damage, the Sunset Valley Road (Forest Road Road 8N09) leading into Davy Brown campground will be closed to the public effective immediately. The closure means there will be no access to the Nira campground and San Rafael Wilderness trails from this area.

“Once the rain moves out and we evaluate the condition of road and stream crossings, we’ll take steps to rehabilitate these areas and re-open access to the public,” said Santa Lucia District Ranger Kathleen Phelps. “Our goal is to ensure our visitors can safely reach the campgrounds and trailheads.”

Members of the public are reminded that they should always call ahead to the district office for the latest conditions and consult the National Weather Service for current weather forecasts.

For more information, call the Santa Lucia District Office at (805) 925-9538.
