Trial court's grant of preliminary injunction ordering defendant to issue plaintiff a permit for vehicle access to Gold Bluffs Beach located within Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park is affirmed where the National Park Service is not an indispensable party to these proceedings, despite the cooperative arrangement between defendant and the National Park Service for managing the parklands within the Redwood National and State Parks, as defendant retains the authority to issue permits for access to the area that remains within state jurisdiction.
