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.

  • We were there in July and it was AMAZING. The information and sights are wonderful. No one can understand the size and beauty of these trees until you can physically be among them. WOW......Great place! The trails were fine I had a New knee put in this past winter and had no problem walking the trails.They do have transportation up to the SKY Trail for those who may not feel they could walk up. Small children seemed to enjoy the Huge Paul B. and Babe. We would love to take the Grand children next trip out! Must see for sure.
  • 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!
  • A real nice experience with unique redwood trees and a cable car ride. I thought the walk up the trail to the cable car entry was the best with lots to see. A huge gift shop onsite takes a while to walk through.
  • I love this place! Their walk through tour is great. The gift shop is huge and the staff is pretty good too.
