Park
“There are many trails at Prairie Creek State Park and the James Irvine Trail is our favorite. You feel as though you've stepped to a magical fairy forest. Giant redwoods, trilliums, ferns, and shamrocks border the trail, giving it the appearance of a manicured woodland garden. Keep in mind that this trail will connect you to famous Fern Canyon, but be warned, it is a very long walk back to your car. ”

“Trees of Mystery is a tourist attraction near the coastal town of Klamath, California. It features many Giant Redwoods and a number of unusual tree formations, many of which can be seen from its Trail of Mysterious Trees. SkyTrail Come Ride The Unforgettable SkyTrail! One of the most appealing and exciting features of the entire Trees of Mystery experience is the nearly 1/3 mile journey through the forest tree tops via the unique SkyTrail gondola ride. Surely nowhere else are you going to have the chance to get an up-close downward perspective from the tops of redwood trees that measure 100s of feet in height. A total of 8 Gondola Cars continuously make the approximately 8-10 minute, 1570 foot trip up the mountain each day - giving riders not only spectacular views of magnificent redwoods, but a fine mountaintop ocean vista at the observation deck at the summit as well.”

Park
“Prairie Creek has 75 miles of hiking trails through the redwoods. We recommend taking a walk through Fern Canyon, which was used as a backdrop for the movie Jurassic Park. If you go, be sure to keep an eye out for the herds of Roosevelt Elk that graze in the meadows!”
