Glide among the tops of giant redwood trees in an enclosed gondola at Trees of Mystery. Giant wooden statues of Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox, among the sculptures and carvings illustrating the adventures of this famous logger and his crew, will greet you. Put on your hiking shoes and explore the more physically demanding wilderness trail. After seeing trees shaped like an elephant, a candelabrum, and a cathedral, rest under painted ceilings of the forest cafe. Finish your journey at the museum, which features a large collection of Native American arts and crafts, including basketry, beadwork, shell work, and a modern stone carving.

  • This was my first time seeing the Redwoods and I loved it! Then to top it off Paul and Babe were there from Paul Bunyon and it was like a childhood dream. Haha! My fiance and I had so much fun. It mak...  read more »
  • Waited 60 years to see it which is good because over 60 is senior pricing. It was a nice diversion and walk in the woods. In the gift shop there is a world class collection of Indian baskets pottery e...  read more »
  • Im so glad I told my husband to stop here because we didn't get to see much of the Redwoods after. The hike is great and relatively easy. Bring water and comfortable shoes, although if you traveling t...  read more »
  • Very well done! Paul Bunyan actually talks to you personally and is quite funny! The trail through the forest is beautiful and informative. You cannot stop looking up at all the beauty! The Skytrail gondola up through the trees is great! The gift shop is huge with homemade fudge to buy. There is also a Native North American area museum which is absolutely beautiful showing artifacts and articles made by the various indigenous peoples that lived (or have lived) in Canada and the US. So well done and everything is reasonably priced. A must see!
  • It's always a great stop along a trip to California from Oregon. I've been many times as a child, and I brought my son through in 2015. You can't miss the photo op with Babe and Paul Bunyan!
  • The trees are a great site just like in the surrounding state and national park. But the tram ride, the carvings, the touristy twist on the trail is pleasant. Quiet place as well.
  • Enjoyed this. Enjoyed the gondola ride above the trees. The trees were beautiful and the path would be stroller and wheelchair friendly. The trees were more awesome inspiring at Jediah State Park but this was definitely fun. The Paul Bunyan and Babe in the front are iconic.
  • Definitely a must if you are an outdoorsy type, or if you can respect nature. The trees are amazing to look at, and the lift was fun. At the top, you can see all the way to the ocean and miles and miles of trees. All the staff was friendly, and you can take your dog everywhere with you if you have one; the gift shop, the trail, everywhere.
