A very nice walk, not too difficult. The walk starts with a video, and then progresses through an old logging area. There are well-explained exhibits all along the way.

The hike is easy and suitable for all ages. It is good to learn the logging history and how difficult it was for people to work here long time ago. However, there aren't much you can put your hands on or to do.

Lots of stuff to see and do there. Gives you a great understanding of the logging process and allows for plenty of hands on experiences. Great for folks of all ages and there is certainly something there for everyone.

No, it's open roughly june-october as it is an outdoor museum. You pay a park fee for your vehicle at the gate... I believe 17 dollars and there is no additional admission at the museum.
