Why wait till Wednesday?

Caltrans has put up a sturdy, padlocked gate on Highway 1 and has met with the Park Ranger to get the trails on the Slide closed to hikers, according to a press release on the Caltrans Devil’s Slide website.

Until recently, entry to the Slide was controlled by a fairly flimsy chainlink fence. Many Coastsiders have been visiting the Slide site and there has been increasing interest in checking out the damage from the hiking trails above.
