Owner description: A site along a family hiking trail in Redwood National Park that also offers a museum of Native American items.

What makes this place special is that it is so completely home-grown and authentic, right down to the free tasting of their home-made fudge at the end of your hike!

The sightseeing trail has informational audio "lectures" that tell you about the sights in front and around you (that are delightfully 50s-esque), the trail itself is an easy walk (even for complaining 5 year olds) and the trees themselves are absolutely breathtaking. The SkyTrail gondola ride among the trees is worth it if you're not plagued with vertigo.

The gift shop is not to be missed (an attraction unto itself) as is the Indian 'End of the Trail' Museum.

An absolute must-do if you're in this area.

For a quick lunch, a great place nearby is the Woodland Villa Markets.

It's such a kitschy stop to make while touring the Redwoods, but we really had a wonderful afternoon taking the gondola ride, and seeing the huge Paul Bunyan and Blue the Ox. It's a bit pricey, but we had to do it, and we're so glad we did. A wonderful family stop, and we would recommend that you take the Gondola tour. We could see the ocean from the top of the ride, and it was stunningly beautiful.

You realize how small we are when you go see something like this. The walk is through some of the largest trees in the world. There is a story about Paul Bunyn carved into trees. We paid for the short gondola ride to the top of the trees breathtaking although cloudy. The gift shop was big and had lots of wood carvings.

This is a beautiful spot the landscaping is awesome! I'm afraid of heights but I found this brochure about the gondola ride over the giant redwood trees. It was incredible! They have such a nice staff tell them if you're scared and they'll tell you where to set so it's the least scary. So glad I did it even though I was a little scared.

John and Debbie Thompson own and operate this brilliantly managed forest experience. It sports one of only three gondola ride of its kind that can take a family through the tops of a 2,000-year-old Redwood forest to a mountain overlook. Also hosts the best Native American museum west of the Mississippi River, according to the Smithsonian Institute. Do not make the mistake of driving past this incredible experience without stopping. A world-class property.
