That could work, Alladin, except that I'm not sure the status of Willow Creek Rd (aka Los Burros Rd). See this handy map of local road closures etc.: http://umap.openstreetmap.fr/en/map/big-sur-closures_122609#11/35.9763/-121.4044
It shows Willow Creek Rd closed, although without details. In any case, I can't imagine it's in very good shape right now.

To access the Vincent's flat trail or Cruikshank trail drive thru hunter logger to the summit of bac-feet road then turn left on so coast ridge road after several scenic miles tun right on los Burris rd take nice drive to bay 1. From here you can explore several trail heads like presort trail Cruikshank or vicente

That is correct, except that the bridge in question is not at Julia Pfeiffer, but is just south of Pfeiffer Big Sur SP near Big Sur Station.
And yes, Nacimiento-Fergusson Rd will close on Wed. from Hwy 1 to the Summit.

Not only that I heard Nacimiento Ferguson Road may close ahead of the next storm this Thursday. Be safe.

Highway 1 impassable South of Big Sur

Postby jbl on Sun Feb 12, 2017 9:55 pm

For those who aren't following the latest on the conditions on Highway 1, there are currently 2 quite severe problems south of Big Sur that have cut off access from the south, the first of which is the loss of much of the roadway at Paul's Slide near Lucia, the second of which is the damage to the bridge just south of Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park which has resulted in the bridge being closed to any vehicular traffic. Big Sur Kate has posted pictures of the damage at Paul's Slide here:

and of the situation at the bridge here:
