Los Padres National Forest covers about 1.75 million acres of the scenic Coast and Transverse Ranges of central California. The forest extends from north to south over nearly 220 miles and consists of two separate divisions of land. Within Monterey County and northern San Luis Obispo County, the northern division includes the beautiful Big Sur Coast and picturesque interior areas. The forest's "main division" includes lands in the counties of San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Ventura and Kern.
