Gate Details

  • GateStatus: Open
  • County: Santa Barbara County
  • Ranger District: Santa Lucia Ranger District
  • Longitude: -120.194275
  • Latitude: 34.939313

This gate is located at the Forest Boundary along Colson Canyon Rd.  It is almost always open but does get closed after periods of heavy rain.  If the gate is locked you cannot drive up to Colson Camp or any of the trails beyond.  You're walking or riding your bike from here.  There is a small turnout and place to part if the road is closed and the canyon is very pretty.
