Family Owned & Operated Since 1946
Situated right in the center of the Redwood National and State Parks, we are California's original redwood Nature Attraction and have been welcoming visitors to this part of the world since 1946. We are the premier Nature Attraction on California's North Coast - welcome visitors young and old from the world over!
We are a 8/10ths of a mile of groomed interpretive trail through the awe-inspiring redwoods. Part of the trail (the Trail of Tall Tales) is devoted to the mythology of Paul Bunyan, America's larger-than-life logger from the turn of the century. The trail, museum, gift shop, restaurant, and motel are all geared toward the family or group traveler. Our trails are open and maintained year-round. Plus, we offer a shuttle to SkyTrail for those who cannot easily walk the trail.
Year-round our 49 foot 2 inch tall Paul Bunyan and his 35 foot tall friend, Babe the Blue Ox, wave and welcome you to the trees of mystery. Additionally, we offer free admission to the End of The Trail Museum - one of the very best privately-held collections of its kind in the world. The museum is truly a labor of love and it is with a deep sense of privilege that we open it to the public without charge.
For us it has been a half-century long love affair with the supernatural magic of the redwoods, the touring public, and seeing the wonder and amazement on the face of a five-year-old child hearing Paul Bunyan say "Hi there, friend! Welcome to the Trees of Mystery!" It has been our great pleasure to awe, entertain, and edify the traveling public for the past 70 years.
Plan to spend at least half a day with us, there is much to see and do! The Trees of Mystery is located on Highway 101, 36 miles south of the Oregon border. We are 320 miles north of San Francisco. We are right in the center of the Redwood forests of California, adjacent to the world famous Klamath River, and of course, right on the Pacific Coast.
