(Steep) South Park Rd is closed to cars for 5 months each year during Newt mating season. (Bicyclists are exempt) That's Vollmer Peak (1,905 feet), the highest point in the Berkeley Hills, in the background.

It tickles me that they type 'thru' when there's no space restriction and that they refer to the newts as a resource. Alternative fuel maybe?
Perhaps they're just Beatles' fans.
Wow. The road is closed for 5 months! THAT is impressive!
Uh, I don't think they actually do it on the road. In fact, I rarely see Newts migrating to the mating zone where ever that is in the park. I see more people walking their dogs off leash than Newts.
What keeps the newts from rolling down the hill while they're doing it?
