360° VR Panoramas of the Redwood National and State Parks
East of Prairie Creek
Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park and Redwood National Park, California

The long ridge east of the Newton Drury Parkway and Prairie Creek is covered in fine old growth redwood forest. It can be accessed via several trails and the unpaved Cal Barrel Road. Lost Man Creek at the south end is the site of a monument proclaiming the redwood parks to be a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The 101 freeway bypass, built to relieve the Newton Drury Parkway of its burden of heavy traffic, climbs steeply over the cutover hills inland of the old growth redwood forest in the park.
