A popular road that cuts through the heart of Humboldt Redwoods State Park in far Northern California is closed “for weeks or more,” following a landslide that buckled pavement and jeopardized several old-growth redwood trees. The landslide is possibly the result of both heavy rain and a series of recent North Coast earthquakes.
The closure on Mattole Road, which went into effect early last week, starts about 1.5 miles west of the U.S. Highway 101 juncture. Drivers approaching on the west side of the road closure are advised to head west and north on Mattole Road toward Ferndale, then connect with U.S. 101 there.
