Inspired by a spectacular grove of Coastal Redwoods in Muir Woods, Cathedral Grove captures the romance and wonder of a natural cathedral of great trees. The majestic Redwoods tower above this grove and create a mythical environment dedicated to the preservation of nature and dreams. When Muir Woods was created, President Theodore Roosevelt noted that such beauty must be preserved for future generations– the beauty of millennia working within an ancient ecosystem as well as mankind’s wonder and perseverance—the inspiration to create art, science and civilization. When President Franklin Roosevelt died just as the United Nations was being formed, delegates from around the world met in Cathedral Grove for his memorial. It was there, they noted, that people had come together to celebrate the harmonious relationship that must exist between mankind and our environment; a place that best embodied our commitment to our natural past as well as our dreams of the future. Clifton’s Cathedral Grove likewise strives to celebrate nature and a future of hope and creativity. Surrounded by mystical murals of California’s flora and fauna, we embark upon a journey into our past– our appreciation of nature, our belief in wonder and commitment to conservation. “The Monarch”, a massive Coastal Redwood, towers over our grove. With its extraordinary artistry, it becomes the centerpiece of our narrative and the symbol of the Clifton’s endeavor. The magnificent Gothic Bar, a shrine to the majesty of nature and the mythology of our cultural heritage, is a place of refuge– a place of exuberance and community through shared experience. It is where we can celebrate beauty and marvel at the vitality of our historic surroundings.
