We considered holding off on posting this until Tuesday, so we could have the park to ourselves this weekend! limekiln15 Limekiln, by Matthew High Big Sur's Limekiln State Park, a favorite of local hikers and campers, reopens today. The park was closed for two years as it recovered from the Chalk fire of 2008. Campsites at Limekiln State Park are first-come, first-served, and the reopening of Limekiln has been hotly anticipated. If you want a campsite this weekend, your best bet is to head down right this second to claim one of the 33 sites. The trail to Limekiln Falls is still closed, but the Limekiln Creek and Hare Trails are both open. Both short trails lead to beautiful redwood groves. Limekiln State Park also has one of the only accessible beaches on the Big Sur coast. Don't miss this beautiful Big Sur jewel!
