Walking through the woods and seeing the different strange shapes the old trees have made is education and somewhat mind-blowing. I've been at least 2-3 times, and still enjoy it. The tall Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox statues are always fun for the kids, whether Paul is "alive" and talking or not. The gift store has lots and... More

You are greeted by a 20 feet (6 meter) animated statue of Paul Bunyan which proceeds to pose for photographs. OK so this is a bit kitschy but behind the statue is the entry to a couple of trails up and along the hillside amongst statuesque redwood trees, most of well over a hundred feet tall with girths of 15...

Wow, we really enjoyed our visit to Trees of Mystery. I'd read all of the reviews and was worried that it would be a letdown, but it was anything but. As my husband said, if you are going to do ONE thing in the Redwoods, do this. The trail leads you through a mythical forest with lots of information on... More

IF YOU HAVE Time, this is worth visiting as you have easy access to some big redwoods. The skytrail was just too busy and we wasted 1 1/2 hours waiting in line to get to top. NOT worth an hour wait.Not much to see during ride or at top. The best part is walking the trail, it is a steep... More

Trees of Mystery was on our way up Highway 101, but we probably would have gone out of our way to visit based on Tripadvisor reviews and reading up on it on the internet. We qualified for "seniors" tickets, so the entry fee was only $22. We enjoyed the hike up to the Sky Trail ride. Along the way there... More

The walking part of Trees of Mystery is a pleasant, amusing stroll among the trees, ferns, and carvings. But the Sky Trail trip was amazing with the clear sky during our visit. From the observation deck at the top, we could see the ocean and nearby mountains clearly. Along the railing, signs with annotated photos identify distant items of interest.... More

Well set up shop and museum with a large, well marked parking lot. Tour in the cable cars was $15 each, and was wiorth it. Ride through the tops of the Redwood trees was very peaceful. Looking down, you appeared to be looking into a tropical botany display with large ferns growing abundantly and moss all around. Nice viewing area... More

We loved the trail through the redwoods. Great variety of trees and helpful information about them.The tram to the top was great; awesome views. The museum in the gift shop had an excellent variety of Native American items from many different tribes. I would highly recommend this redwood experience!

Yes, this does sound like a giant tourist trap with Paul Bunyan and Babe statues outside, but the gondola ride through the tops of the redwoods is quite breathtaking. It gives one a whole different feel riding through the tops of the trees, especially after spending several days in the giant redwoods riding through the trees and gazing up at... More

Never have I seen trees this big. What a great place to just hike the trails and enjoy the quiet sound of nature. You can ride the Sky Trail for a birds eye view of the forest and the ocean. A timeless place that will be preserved forever. Great gift shop and small museum. A small fee for the Sky... More
