    In the area to stop in Calistoga stopped because on the way ... the journey takes less than an hour and the trees are all fenced. It seems to be at the zoo, some you can't even touch ... cost $12 per person.

    Free parking. Friendly staff. Inexpensive. Lots of signs to learn about what your looking. Umbrellas avaidavle to borrow free if its sunny or rainy. Some of the trails were difficult for my kids stroller so wheelchair bound people would have a hard time
