Klamath, California and Trees Of Mystery

If you plan to enjoy the “supernatural magic” of the Redwoods, then you must visit Trees Of Mystery located on Highway 101, right on the Pacific Coast.  This family-owned & operated nature attraction is only 36 miles south of the Oregon border.

Opened in 1946, this is an 8/10th’s of a mile groomed interpretive trail running through the astonishingly tall redwoods. You should plan to spend at least 1/2 of a day here.

The only chance you may get to have a downward perspective on the tall redwoods would be by taking the fully-enclosed Sky Trail gondola ride.  This not only gives  you unbelievable views of the redwoods, but also of the mountains and forests.  Once you arrive at the summit, step out onto the observation deck and have a mountaintop Pacific Ocean vista awaiting you.

The End of the Trail museum is a privately owned world-class museum which offers no charge for entry.   Each artifact has been carefully assembled by one woman (Marylee Thompson) since 1968 in an effort to preserve the cultures of “The First Americans”.

There are also many trails to explore in this nature preserve. One trail is a half-mile forested hike that leads down a tree-covered hillside to a small cove beach that is tucked away and is rarely busy.  Drift logs pile up in the sand and huge rocks jut out in the surf.  The name of this beach is Hidden Beach.

If you plan to do a little more exploring around the Klamath area, Mystery of Trees also offers accommodations.  One reviewer said that this was her favorite place to stay while traveling along on her West Coast trip.

Klamath looks like an interesting place to explore.  It is known for its redwoods, river, mountains, and of course the rugged Pacific Coast.
