|Paul Bunyan and sidekick Blue Ox. (Julianne G. Crane)|
This attraction sits in the center of Redwood National and State Parks. The 49-foot-tall statue of mythic logger Paul Bunyan and his 35-foot sidekick, Babe the Blue Ox, welcome visitors and stand guard over the entrance to the park.
|Cathedral tree. (Julianne G. Crane)|
In 2001, the park added the handicapped accessible Sky Trail gondola ride that glides 1,570 feet (one-way), at times more than 500 feet above the forest floor and ends at a breath taking ocean and forest view point. (There is a shuttle to the Sky Trail loading area for those who cannot easily walk the trail.)
RVers will appreciate that pet companions on leashes are welcome on all the hiking trails and gondola ride.

The free End of the Trail Museum, attached to the gift shop, is said to be "one of the largest privately owned world class museums there is." Allow at least 1/2-day for this stop on your RVing itinerary.
