As May 25, 2017 Elkhorn Road is completely OPEN! See the map for directions.
Kirby Park REMAINS CLOSED. The access road to Kirby Park was badly damaged so Kirby Park remains closed until further notice.
The 2016-2017 winter took a hard toll on Kirby Park’s culvert system. Underneath the road leading to the parking lot, a major culvert was damaged. As a result, Kirby Park is closed until further notice. Although the Elkhorn Slough Foundation cares for the trail and the boardwalk, we do not own or maintain the road and parking lot.
Kirby Park is managed by the Moss Landing Harbor District. The road is managed by Monterey County. As of July 2017 Monterey County has not provided any information as to when the road leading to Kirby Park will be fixed.
