One of our local treasures is Fern Canyon in the Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park
near Orick. In early March, a landslide closed the road to the parking lot. Of course, visitors could still access the Canyon through the Prairie Creek Visitor Center but that is considerably longer. Now the road has reopened.
According to the Redwoods National and State Parks Twitter feed,
Road access to Fern Canyon parking lot has been restored. There is still a log-jam 1/4 mile up the trail, and no summer footbridges have been installed. Happy (wet) hiking!
