We loved going to the Trees of Mystery. We found the trail full of information that we otherwise would not have known. The gondola ride at the end of the trail was breathtaking. At the top there were views of the ocean and of the mountain range. What could be better..... It was fun to see the Paul Bunyon and his Ox. The gift shop has delicious fudge and lots of fun things to look at. We ended up spending way more time at this stop than what we imagined. So glad we didn't miss this!

Trees of Mystery will certainly grab your attention as you pass through a stand of coastal redwoods. Nestled in the cool climate of the northern California coast, This is a great place to stop and take a break. Ride the gondolas to the top of the mountain and look out over the expanse of luscious forests, hopefully catching sight of a bald eagle or an osprey (nests for both are visible if the weather is clear), but whatever you do, don't miss the collection of American Indian baskets and artifacts in the main building.

My wife and I spent a lot of time in the Pacific Northwest looking at collections of Native American baskets, and none matched the beauty and volume of this collection. The docent on duty when we were there was very knowledgeable and very friendly, and the only warning is to watch out for the candy bar - it can be a hip killer!

This is the perfect break when driving up or down the coast. The kids can get out and enjoy themselves, and adults can stretch their legs and walk off 'driver stiffness.'

I thought when I saw the place that it would just be a normal tourist trap to get into your wallet. The view from the top of the gondola trip to the ocean is one I will never forget. Do not miss this attraction.

This was a terrific way to see the redwoods when you have little time to spare! The tram ride was terrific with fantastic views, especially at the top when you can actually see the ocean. Beautiful trees, beautiful folliage, just a very enjoyable time!

What a terrific find if you're traveling with your dog. The whole place was dog friendly - including the gift shop. Don't forget to get your AAA discount.

All the trails are dog friendly. We could even ride up on the Skytrail aerial gondola with our pups. Our two little poodles loved looking out the 360 degree windows. We took the gondola up and back (you have the option of hiking back down).

It was a clear day so we had views of the redwoods and the ocean up at the top. We spent 3 hours here! We took our time walking up to the gondola, taking lots of photos with the dogs and reading the attraction signs.

Tip - Getting to the gondola was a bit confusing. Yes, you do walk uphill for about 20 minutes before you hit the lift. There is a shuttle to take you directly to the gondola if you don't want to walk.
