They closed the road at the Elk campground entrance, not sure when this happened or how long its been shut down. We were able to walk along it though on our way from Prairie Creeks to Big Tree and it was beautiful! Plenty of bikers and people just enjoying the view.

I only wish I had more time! I drove through a few times during my week in the area. I would have loved to wonder the area much more though. It was a beautiful drive.

First to Review

Easy trail following the coast. We saw several whales just off the shore, easily seen without binoculars, but excellent view with them. Make sure to bring a pair. The early warning radar station posing as a farm house was an amazing part of history.
