Trees of Mystery
Vacation Travel Guide

Uncover the fascinating world of giant redwood trees via interpretive trails, a museum, a treetop gondola and wooden sculptures that may be familiar. 

Enjoy a day of family-friendly entertainment at Trees of Mystery. This amusement and educational park stands in the heart of the vast protected forests of Redwood National and State Parks. At Trees of Mystery, walk in the shadow of soaring redwoods, which are among the world’s tallest tree species. Learn about a folkloric hero and ride a cable car high above a tree canopy.

Upon arrival at the attraction you’ll be greeted by an imposing wooden statue of Paul Bunyan and his companion Babe the Blue Ox. Gaze up at Bunyan, a mythological lumberjack and popular character in children’s literature and theatrical productions.

Easy trails wind around the park. Along them interpretive signs provide facts about the majestic trees. See examples of the coastal redwood, Douglas fir and Sitka spruce. Gaze up at the 2,000-year-old and 297-foot-tall (90-meter) Brotherhood Tree. Marvel at the nine trunks of the Cathedral Tree and the magnificent roots of the Elephant Tree. The Candelabra Tree is a fallen tree that has new shoots growing from its trunk.

The Trail of Tall Tales is a showcase of both artistic craftsmanship and American folklore. Admire a collection of carvings and sculptures cut using a chainsaw. They depict events and characters associated with Paul Bunyan. Discover artifacts related to Native American tribes at the End of Trail Museum.

Step aboard the SkyTrail for an enthralling 10-minute gondola ride above a dense forest of redwoods to a mountaintop. At the observation deck at the summit enjoy sublime panoramic views of undulating landscapes, woodland and the Pacific Ocean. The gondola departs from close to the Brotherhood Tree. There is also a shuttle bus to the observation area.

Find the attraction just north of Klamath, California within the national park. It’s about a 35-minute drive south from Crescent City and has a regular public bus service from the town. Use the free on-site parking.

Trees of Mystery is open daily and has an admission fee, although the national park itself is free to enter. Children age 5 and under have free admission. Visit the Trees of Mystery official website for more information.
