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

This takes you into the Redwood Forest. There are many trails to choose from and a aerial tram to bring you back down -- or up if you don't like to walk. The grandeur of the trees need nothing else. The height and width of the trees are amazing, as is the earthy smell of the trees. Very, very enjoyable.

Great gift shop. We were just passing through the area and stopped. I'm not a big shopper. I picked up a deck of cards with pictures of the Redwood Forest area. I wanted more but the gifts are expensive.

...so we are driving down the coast from Oregon and one of the first tourist spots to see REDWOODS is this one... Trees of Mystery! It was very cold the day we visited but we layered up and took the gondola up through the fog... it was beautiful. The visitors center has an outstanding Indian Museum.

Its a bit on the pricey side but the kiddos absolutely loved talking with Paul Bunyon in the parking lot and hiking the trail up to the gondola ride. Great gift shop as well.

We stopped here one morning as part of our road trip from Los Angeles to Seattle. Normally this kind of themed tourist attraction is not our thing at all, and at the end of the day, it's just trees, but we had it recommended to us so gave it a try. And we had a good time! There is a... More

If you are looking for a one of a kind roadside attraction, this is a must stop place. We stopped coming and going. And as luck would have it on our stop on the way back, Paul Bunyan was moving and talking. It was great. The gift show is full of one of a kind stuff. We didn't go on... More

This tourist destination is quite pricey at $16 per person. It takes maybe an hour to hike through the mystery trees. If you want to ride the gondola that will take a longer visit. We wanted to ride the gondola, but while we were there the operators kept starting and stopping it to check for something (safety?) so we declined... More

This is a VERY SPECIAL place! We have been here many times and always enjoy stopping to take the small walk through this surreal wonderland of elder's. It is a steeper hike than I remembered, its been a few years since we've been here, and Mom is 71 now, but she had very little trouble with the hike. We just... More

This place reminded me of some stops made in MN many years ago as a kid. The gift shop and main buildings are nicely maintained. The walk is worth it. We liked the lift ride, too, and the view from there at the top was magnificent. Might be a tough stroll for older folks or parents with strollers but it... More
