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!

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