Spent about 4 hrs here on a Sun, got here early, plenty of parking, there is a $10 parking charge. Walked around, small shops, not a very big place but two places to grab something to eat from. The train ride on the steam engine to Bear mountain was just right for my 2 yr old son, my 10yr old daughter was very impressed by the trees as well as the train. Great place, definitely worth checking out

This was a surprise Father's Day tour through the redwoods up Bear Mountain on the steam train. Even the teenage daughters were surprised at how much they enjoyed it too! Very educational and a truly amazing way to see the beauty of these redwoods. Highly recommend!
