When you’re traveling through Northern California this summer in your RV, don’t pass up some of the region’s lesser known attractions. While they’re not as well known as other attractions, they’re the ones that you’ll remember years later due to their quirky nature.
Sky Trail and the Trees of Mystery
Trees of Mystery is a tourist attraction that’s been around for years. Opened in 1946 and owned and operated by the same family for 67 years, the park is full of quirky fun and breathtaking scenery.
You’re greeted at the entrance by a 49-foot tall Paul Bunyan and his blue ox, Babe. The park plays homage to Paul Bunyan and devotes much to his lore.
One of the newest features, installed in 2001, is the Sky Trail aerial tramway. It allows guests to soar in the treetops of the redwoods along a 1/3 mile track. It ends in an observation deck that allows you to view the Pacific Ocean through the treetops.
Lava Beds National Monument
With over 700 lava tube caves (20 of which are open to public exploration without a guide), the remote Lava Beds is the place to go for a weekend full of exploration. Add to this the fact that the park has a rich historic and cultural background and some of the darkest night skies anywhere in the state, and you’ve got a recipe for a great experience.
Winchester Mystery House
A sprawling mansion that’s a testament to madness as much as to wealth, the Winchester Mystery House was the home of Sarah Winchester, who married into the Winchester gun-making family. After she was widowed, she spent the rest of her life expanding the house in nonsensical ways, ordering stairs that led to nowhere, secret passages, and doors that opened onto open space. It’s a sight to behold and a wonderful oddity.
