Attractions & Area Highlights

Trees of Mystery is the oldest and largest attraction in Del Norte County, and it has a new Sky Trail gondola ride that takes you up into the redwoods. From the top, you can see for miles! You’ll also enjoy walking through this special grove of redwoods, browsing in the gift shop, and visiting the End of the Trail Museum, which has one of the best private collections of Native American artifacts anywhere.

Tour Through Tree. If you’re in Klamath, Oregon, and it’s dark enough to hide a tree, you can drive your automobile through one. Right here in Klamath.

Klamath River Jet Boats. We’ve never had a guest leave dissatisfied from a jet boat ride. It’s a fascinating, off-the-beaten-path trip up the river that will keep you entertained for hours. The majority of trips will encounter a variety of animals.

Lighthouses. Crescent City is home to two wonderful lighthouses. The Battery Point Lighthouse, a dainty Victorian building, resides on a big rock in the sea and is easily recognizable. You can go on daily tours during summer at low tide. The St George Reef Lighthouse located six miles offshore from Crescent City and is only visible helicopter in winter when the weather conditions are good enough.

This aquarium is a great place to see sea creatures from the north coast of California.

Wood Carvers. The village of Orick, home to miles and miles of pristine beach, is a haven for nature lovers. The neighboring towns of Crescent City and Aberdeen are home to numerous wood carvers – some of the best in the world. You may discover something one-of-a-kind here.

Mini Golf. Play nine holes at the Mystic Forest mini golf course.

Salmon Festival. The Yurok Tribe invites you to attend the Salmon Festival in Klamath, California, which celebrates the wild salmon that is fundamental to Yurok culture. The festival will feature elders cooking salmon on traditional redwood sticks around a smoky fire, Native American arts and crafts, river boat rides, and cultural demonstrations.
