  • 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
  • Interesting place. Informative self-guide brochure. Won't take you long to get through. Took us about half an hour
  • A mildly interesting walk. I'm not sure why it came up when we looked for giant redwood trees...
  • Great one mile trek through more petrified trees than I expected. Also, the lovely lady in the gift store gave Ricky a great book on prehistoric history.
  • Oh, goodness! The REAL petrified forest!!! So awesome! Bucket list :D
