In compliance with county health orders on social distancing most activity permits are currently suspended. General access permits are currently available only for permit parking at the following locations:

  • Bear Creek Redwoods Preserve – equestrian parking
  • El Sereno Preserve – Overlook Drive parking lot
  • La Honda Creek Preserve – Allen Road parking lot and equestrian parking at the Event Center
  • Monte Bello Preserve – Waterwheel Creek parking lot

Permits are not available for after-hours astronomy.  To maintain public safety and safe social distancing, Midpen will not open parking lots or issue permits this year for viewing the annual Perseid meteor shower. Midpen preserves and parking lots close at one-half hour after sunset. Thank you for your cooperation.
