“Nice stop for families!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013

The Trees of Mystery is a trail that winds around the forest with stops along the way describing the various trees. There are benches to sit and enjoy the views. The trail is fairly easy and well graveled. There is a bit of a climb so if you have disabilities you may want to take the guided tour. The size of some of these trees is truly amazing. There are certainly many other stops along the Redwood Highway where you could see just as many giant Redwoods. Whether you stop at a State Park or just pull off the highway, you will not be disappointed in taking the time to stop and gaze upwards at these beautiful trees. The gift shop has many trinkets and keepsakes...fun to stop for souvenirs. Unless you have a family, I would skip the $15 per person trail and wander through the trees along the highway!

“Paul Bunyan and Native Americana”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

What's the big mystery? There's trees. They're all over the place in that neck of the woods. Much better is the giant Paul Bunyan and Babe statues in the parking lot. Plus, Paul has a lot to say through a loudspeaker, pretty funny. The store inside is the usual touristy stuff that can be found at any park. However, the free museum of Native American artifacts is one of the best I've ever seen anywhere! Baskets, headdresses, hunting and gathering implements, it has it all, and not just from the local tribes, but from everywhere across the country. I could stay there for hours. And if you want to ride a tram through some trees, I guess you can do that, too.

“Worth a Look”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

Interesting walk plus a gondola ride. Very relaxing and informative. Great for kids.... Price of admission includes the Sky Trail Gondola... (Some people think its an additional fee) You have the freedom to walk the trail at your own pace and its not difficult at all. Plenty of interpretive postings all along the trail. There is also available more strenuous hiking available. Check it out.
