Prewitt Ridge is located above the southern Big Sur coastline, in a short distance from the ocean in Los Padres National Forest, near Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park. It offers stunning views of the coastline and peaks in the area. Prewitt Ridge Campground is located on an elevation of 3,200 ft off of Nacimiento-Ferguson Rd, along the Prewitt Ridge Rd. You will need a 4WD vehicle to drive up there since dirt roads require a high-clearance.
Prewitt Ridge offers a few hiking trails with epic views. If you prepare to stay long, bring a lot of water since the place is very dry. The campground doesn't have a trash collector, so prepare to take back everything you bring in.
Prewitt Ridge is open to visitors all year round, but the best time to visit is from March to November.
