Lots of free options don’t bother with this at $12.00 per person it is just not worth it.

a nice educational hike with the guide. sorry people complain about the cost but it's privately owned and operated. so nice it's available to the public.

Nice trail, brief. In and out in like an hour. I enjoy history. Not sure if it’s worth $12 though.

Hiking

I wouldn't go necessarily for the hike, but seeing all the Petrified trees was amazing. It can be longer than .4 depending on how you do it, but definitely bring water and a sun hat if you go in the summer because there's basically no shade.

A decent outing. Kids and elder friendly. Great for parents who want to embark on a family activity. Also nice for a follow up walk after a moderate to strenuous hike.

I really like this hike as it’s not very long and a lot to see. However $12 is a bit steep

Good short hike. More like an educational walk great to do with kids. It does have some good uphills and its cool to see some petrified trees and redwoods. Also has a gift shop.

Running

Short and disappointing. Plus there are "no running" signs. Not worth the price of admission.

Easy walk with fascinating trees and a view of the volcano that created the petrified forest. Nice picnic area.

A short hike easy enough for most anyone winds through various petrified trees and ancient ash flows.Explores some fascinating history and geologic events significant to the area.The Hike could stand to be a little longer and/ or the area more expansive considering what you have to pay to get in though.

Great historic site to bring youth and youth groups to teach about the geology of the earth, plants and rocks. GREAT rock shop, great family day trip.
