Unless you live in Iowa and this is your first trip out of state, there is nothing impressive about Trees of Mystery. If you want to walk in a truly magnificent redwood forest, visit Prairie Creek State park near Orick (south on Hwy 101) or Jedediah Smith State Park (north on Hwy 101). Both are free. In those parks, you... More

The ride that glides through the redwood tree area is amazing; the views are breathtaking. It gives one a different view of these amazing trees, The walking trail is also quite nice. As always, Paul Bunyan and Babe and the Blue Ox are amazing to see! There were some beautiful flowers this time in front of the Trees Mystery parking... More

There is a famous large, if not huge, statue of Paul Bunyan and Babe in front of this private enterprise. (Explain these to your kids.) And the name of the place written in hedges! But it is quite wonderful -- there are some really fascinating trees here (I'll leave them as a surprise) and a cable car up to the... More

We were surprised to walk to the entrance and have Paul Bunyan talk to us. Loved the gift shop lots to offer plus a museum. The Gondola ride was my favorite part. Great views without the hike. I would recommend then to anyone

This place had it all........Paul Bunyon wise cracking with the crowd........beautiful trees....... interesting carvings.......a narrator that sounded like he was from the 50's......... a fabulous gondola ride that took us to the top for wonderful views. It was a couple of hours of fun and well worth the time and money. Would do it again if I was ever in... More

Residents of Minnesota will be shocked to find huge statutes of their favorite son, Paul Bunyan, and his Blue Ox Babe, standing tall here so far from their North Woods home. Others may see these giant statues and immediately dismiss the whole place-- especially with a name like "Trees of Mystery"-- as some kind of kitschy tourist trap. Don't! We... More

My husband took us down the Pacific coast for our 18th Anniversary trip. We stayed at hotels on the way down and the Trees of Mystery was our first excursion. I had seen photos of Paul Bunyon and his blue ox, but did not realize Paul could move and talk! He was very fun and funny to listen to. We... More

While this is truly a "touristy" place it was an excellent first exposure to the giant redwoods. It was really educational and informative and laid the foundation for the rest of the trip and our stay at sequoia national park. The gondola ride was breathtaking. We were speechless after the visit. The giant Paul Bunyan and Ox at the entrance... More

This place has it's tacky elements but they are so uncool it almost makes them hip. If you cannot walk about one mile up a modest grade I suggest you skip this attraction. Why? Because the most amazing trees can only be seen on the walk up to the gondola. The gondola was pretty neat as well given you could... More

You get a nice hike through the trees and the Gondola ride. The hike is easy enough for anyone to do, an the trees are interesting. The Gondola ride is fun (my 3 year old grandson Screamed with joy the whole way up and down) there are some nice views form above and you can see the ocean (unless the... More
