  • Interesting enough to take the tour. I found the story about how the wood became petrified made me want to see the examples they had. The gift shop was cool, too. The fireplace made of petrified wood was funny!
  • Unexpected find while touring wineries. Very enjoyable visit. Worth the stop.
  • It's really cool if it's your first time seeing petrified trees. Otherwise, the entrance fee is a little steep for what you get (about 1.5 miles of trails with petrified trees on the side). However, they are adding a new trail which should be open soon. The gift store is really cool, it's basically a small museum with minerals and fossils to look at. It's a good place to bring children.
  • Ok experience but not worth the fee in my opinion. Gift shop has some nice and interesting items.
  • Beautiful here. So peaceful. Wished the Redwood trail was open when we went. It is a relaxing, quick hike.
