Trees of Mystery, Klamath

4.3
#1 of 6 in Things to do in Klamath
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.

  • Okay, so I thought this place was going to be a big tourist trap. Well, it is very touristy, however, it is actually very well kept and worth the price of admission. For $15, you get a gondola ride in...  more »
  • Greeted at the parking lot by Paul and Babe. Went and paid for out tickets 1 senior in our party with limited walking. They have a buggy that picked him up and took him up to the gondola while we walk...  more »
  • You can get to the gondola station in two ways. You can hike up the trail, or if you have difficulty with walking, there is a shuttle to take you up. From the top of the gondola, you get a pretty nice...  more »

  • Well worth the investment of time and money. A beautiful relaxed hike on the trail system to see the Redwoods. Tram ride was a unique view of the Redwoods from above. Museum was an impressive collection of native artifacts. Looked kitschy at first but glad we persisted and stopped in.
  • Really enjoyed the Tress of Mystery. This was dog friendly and a great family outting. The trails were marked nicely and the carvings worth the walk. We took the sky lift up and saw great views of the area. Nice gift shop that included coffee drinks, and fudge. Covered big foot, Paul and his blue ox and a great Indian museum free of charge.
  • 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.
  • Loved it! This was one of my favorite stops down 101. Stop by if you want to see insanely huge trees, take the Sky Trail gondola, or learn about northwest folklore. It only takes an hour or so to see everything depending on how quickly you go through and how many pictures you stop to take.
