Dipsea Foot Bridge at the Annex Lot is BACK!
The Dipsea foot bridge at the Annex Lot is back in place. Thanks to all who took the Deer Park Fire Road detour. Taking those extra steps helped to protect Redwood Creek and the endangered juvenile coho.
The main parking lot is open, and a new plaza has been created. In the weeks to come, new furnishings and signage will be installed. Visitors will have a place to eat a light snack, meet up, get information and enjoy wildlife viewing. Other uses of the plaza include Nature's Classroom for school groups, a staging area for emergency crews, and a Nature's Amphitheater for large events. The riparian edge close to the creek will be restored and planted with native plants. We hope you enjoy the new plaza in front of the Visitor Center.
