Don't get confuse with Redwood National Park and this like I did. This tree is in Leggett and a private property. You have to pay $5 per vehicle and you can drive thru a few times... read more

We decided that for $5 it was worth a look. Wow is this place popular, there was a line up just to drive through the tree. The Japanese tourists the day we were there took ages to go through as each one of them wanted a photo in the drivers seat going through the tree, then they wanted a photo... More

Don't get confuse with Redwood National Park and this like I did. This tree is in Leggett and a private property. You have to pay $5 per vehicle and you can drive thru a few times assuming not many cars around. This place has a parking, a gift shop and clean bathroom to stop. If you happen to be in... More

Underwood Park with its Drive-Thru tree is quite the experience. I would be horrified if the Drive-Thru Tree was created today. Such damage to a giant redwood should not be sanctioned. It was 1937 when the tree was modified to create the Drive-Thru feature. The sense of damage to the tree with is potential to destroy the tree was not... More

This was really cool to do. The drive in was longer than we thought it would be, so we kept wondering if we went the wrong way. The gift shop has some cool things in it, depending what you are looking for. If you are doing a road trip, I would definitely recommend this, as its a cool experience and... More

Stopped here on the way north. Convenient location just off the highway and only cost $5/car. The tree still seems to be in amazing shape and our rented GMC Acadia (full size SUV) fit through with no problems, but there is a drive-around option if you don't want to risk it. There are several old tree trunks to climb on... More

Reasonable entry and legendary actual drive-thru tree, clean restrooms, duck pond, and gift shop with coffee.

Worth five bucks, amazing tree. Lots of touristy crap at the end of the drive past the tree, I didn't need to go in there. The experience is inside the tree itself, not cool for the tree though - hard to survive and stand when a large portion has been cut out of it.

Well it's a bit of a cliche outing but I wasn't really prepared for the size of this beauty. Over 2000 yrs old it really is stunning. Drove my Kia Sorento rental through at snails pace with barely millimetres to spare and posed for the camera feeling delighted. A little gift shop on sight is enthusiastically staffed and I'd really... More

A short distance off the 101 highway. The drive through tree takes us back to the era of the roadside attraction prior to the interstates. There is a $5 fee. We were able to carefully drive through the six foot wide opening. Many have probably seen pictures of this iconic attraction. There is a gift shop and a meadow at... More

This attraction is set on private property with a $5 entrance fee and features a giant redwood big enough to drive a car through. The experience is novel and really lets you appreciate the size and grandeur of the redwoods. Great fun and a quick detour off Highway 1. You can also take a quick walk through the redwoods on...
