The final Bike-and-Hike Day on the Newton B. Drury Parkway in Redwood National and State Parks this spring will take place this Saturday, June 4th. The Newton B. Drury Parkway through Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park will be closed to motorized vehicles all day Saturday providing an opportunity for visitors to experience the parkway without the noise, speed and sound of cars and trucks. Come explore one of the most beautiful and historic roadways in northern California by foot, bicycle, skateboard, razor scooters, wheelchair or any other non-motorized vehicle. Dogs on leash are also welcome on the parkway, although they are prohibited on the trails for the safety of park visitors and wildlife. Newton B. Drury Scenic Parkway is a stunning section of the historic Redwood Highway six miles north of Orick, CA, and four miles south of Klamath, CA. Parking is available at the southern entrance to the parkway in designated spaces adjacent to Elk Prairie. The parkway has something for everyone—from families with young children looking for a safe and easy 2-mile round-trip bike ride to the Big Tree, to those looking for a the full 16-mile round-trip from one of the parkway to the other. Much of the southern end of the parkway is relatively flat, while the hills of the northern portion offer require a bit more effort. For more information about the first Saturday parkway closures or other ways to enjoy your parks, call the Redwood National and State Parks Information Office at (707) 465-7335, or stop by a Redwood National and State Parks visitor center between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Additional park information is available through our Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram pages under the name “RedwoodNP"
