Fodor's Review

Spectacular redwoods and lush ferns make up this park traversed by the stunning Newton B. Drury Scenic Parkway. Extra space has been paved alongside the parklands, providing fine places to observe herds of Roosevelt elk, which at one time neared extinction, in adjoining meadows. Another section of the park, reached via unpaved Davison Road or by hiking on trails from the park's interior, fringes gorgeous Gold Bluffs Beach. If your time in Redwood National Park is limited, Prairie Creek is one of the best in the system to spend a full day hiking and exploring.
