Now, through a partnership with David's Chair, anyone with mobility challenges can check out a track chair to explore the beautiful forests and trails of Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park.
Reservations are strongly encouraged to ensure a track chair provided by David's Chair will be available during your visit.
The track chair is available at no cost to the user.
