How amazing to see such ancient tree trunks and bits preserved! I feel like this area is definitely under advertised! I loved learning the little tidbits about how the trees formed into what you see today! It was a nice little walk/hike, but not of any interest to our toddler (<2years old).

The kids loved it! It is a very easy trail for little ones and scenery was beautiful. It was very educational. We also enjoyed the information booklet you pick up at the beginning of the trail.

There really is nothing left of this once beautiful treasure as it has been vandalized to the point where there is nothing remaining. Unfortunately, visitors have taken the liberty of taking home "treasure" as a keepsake. Sad.

Took our three year old out here for her first hike. Easy to navigate path, although the end is a little steeper than the rest. We took lots of pictures and had a great trip. Not a collection site though, so no souvenirs.
