A must see along the Redlands trail. A great testament to the oddness that makes the human experience interesting. The tour guides were fun and informative. A great way to spend a couple of hours.

Will never b closer than we were at 9 a.m Friday, so "why not?". Nice continuous loop tour guide, as it was Tom's enthusiastic tour that made the $15 (senior fare) al.ost worth it. Got to love something this odd/ hard to explain!

We took the guided tour and the guy was very knowledgeable. We got to see the various things the guy built with simple hand tools and these great big huge stones.

A typical drive from the airport is approximately 45 minutes. With ongoing construction you might need to add some time.
