IN THE REDWOODS
Dogs are allowed on a leash of not more than 10' in the State Redwood Parks (Prairie Creek Redwoods and Humboldt Redwoods State Park) within developed areas, park roads and campgrounds, however they are prohibited on trails.
An exception is Cal Barrel Rd Trail in Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park - This is a gravel 3-mile road, open to cars. It's a winding road through old-growth forest located north of the Prairie Creek Visitor Center on Newton B. Drury Scenic Parkway.
