A great stop. The Sky Trail was a lot of fun and the trail to and from was a great opportunity to stretch legs and have some fun. Loved the Paul Bunyan tales. Delicious fudge in the gift shop and lots of fun souvenirs. Don't forget to take a picture with Babe the Blue Ox!

don't be fooled by the giant sculptures outside. This place is stunning beyond words. Well worth the $16 a person. A lovely trail leads you to a breathtaking giant redwood tree (tree of brotherhood) followed by the sky tram which is thrilling. The best part is the Native American museum which is tucked away and under-advertised as this was the... More

We doubted the visit could ever take up three hours or even half a day. We comfortably saw everything in under two hours except the advanced trail which leads up to the upper cable car station. The views from the trails are splendid as are those from the cable car. The occasional slow movement of the latter makes for great... More

We had read about this attraction and weren't disappointed when we arrived. There's plenty of parking space (free) outside, as well as a massive comical statue of Paul Bunyan and Babe. You can see the statues without going in, they're very visible from the road (the 101). The entrance price is very reasonable, considering how long you can spend there.... More

I had heard about the trees of mystery for most of my life as my grandparents had visited it several times en route to California from Washington State. In June, my family and I drove from Washington down the 101 to California. This was on our must-see stops. First off, there's a GINORMOUS statue of Paul Bunyan and Babe at... More

Found this place while driving down the Coast. Super touristy, but good for some great views, nice walk and some up close time with the Redwoods. From the parking lot, pass the Paul Bunyan and Babe the blue Ox statues and proceed to the ticket counter. Its a fairly decent walk to the ski lift area to begin the ascent.... More

the native American museum. It was incredible! and free! Also broke down and bought some very good fudge in the shop. Possibly a gondola or zip line here which we weren't able to try at the time. Great place for kids.

It was a rainy day, but we still enjoyed learning so much about the redwood forest. We even braved the hike down from the top!

The huge trees are amazing !!!! Their age, how they grow and adapt to survive. A bit of a touristy, yes. A tad bit expensive yes. But out of all of the touristy places my wife & I have been to (and that's a few), this place was by far the cleanest, the friendliest and most informative that we have... More

If you are in the area, this is actually worth stopping for. It is a tourist trap - make no mistake about that, but the gondola ride through the forest is pretty awesome. Well groomed trails that wind through the forest, with periodic stopping points where one spectacular tree after another is highlighted. Granted, you will see more tress (and... More
