  • a little expensive but we enjoyed ourselves, our grandkids had a blast climbing on Paul Bunyans shoe and asking him endless questions and the ride to the top was beautiful we could see the ocean.  more »

  • Beautiful and odd trees makes for a nice stroll through an enchanting forest. The gondola ride is fun and views from the top of the hill is impressive. I would recommend a nice picnic spot but there is only an observation deck and people might look at you funny. The hike down is for experienced hikers only, beware novice or out of shape weekenders. Ropes made the slick, muddy trail navigable. The gift shop is exactly what you would expect, but is full of nice, cute little oddities. My wife bought a very nice redwood burl clock. The American Indian museum was fascinating and full of beautiful historic pieces. I have been here three times now (10, 47 & 50 yo) and will come back as my daughter has not been here and the memories are priceless.
  • A wonderful chance to walk through a forest of huge trees plus a gondola ride to the to of a mountain. Great views, good gift shop, very reasonable priced entry. Would thoroughly recommend this - especially as a chance to break your journey. Also recommend for children.
  • What fun we had at Trees of Mystery today! We took the hike with our dog up the designated path and rode the tram to the top of the hill. The views are spectacular and I would recommend the hike back down down as opposed to the tram ride. The hike is a bit steep and is for the more adventurous types.
  • To clarify an earlier comment.....No need to enter the gift shop prior to entering the trails. Only way to purchase tickets is to go up the ramp to the right of the gift shop entrance. This is a wonderful place to spend 2 to 4 hours. If you love nature, you will be in haeven. Kids love this place so take them and take your dog.
  • I have been to Trees of Mystery twice and plan on going again two more times this year for a family vacation. It is always so fascinating and breath taking seeing all the GIANT trees and views! I can never get tired of going there! Across the street from Trees of Mystery is a restaurant with the best hamburger i have ever eaten in my life! It is called the Bigfoot! And it is Big! And super good! I highly recommend going especially if you love the outdoors, and amazingly good food! ;)
