Had taken the granddaughters to Hearst Castle last year. This year's adventure was the Nitt Witt Ridge. Mike is great. We enjoyed this walk about as much as the girls. Definitely different then other tours. Don't think the locals are on board with this place. Would suggest calling ahead of time to book a date and time.

Mike spins a tragic tale of Art's life before, during and following his magnum opus in Cambria. Well worth the 10 buck voluntary contribution at the end of the tour. From remaining items not pilfered after Art's departure to interviews with neighbors, Mike shows one an entertaining glimpse of waterfalls, his and hers side-by-side toilets and other oddities created by Art. Well worth a trip.

I think you get the whole picture from the historial plaque and what you can read on line. Not sure if the owners are all that interested in arranging 'tours', as the means to do this are via email. But drive by (very close to downtown Cambria) for a look.

Would have rated higher if I would have known you could book a tour. Will definitely do that next time. Interesting piece of property.
